The former Central Bank Governor and front line APGA gubernatorial aspirant, Professor Charles Soludo and three other aspirants have scaled through the first hurdle in their quest to participate in the November sixth governorship poll.
Those, who were cleared by the party to contest the June twenty-third 2021 primary election with Professor Soludo are Sir Damian Okolo, Dr. ThankGod Ibe, and Honourable Okwudili Ezenwankwo.
According to a release signed by the National Organizing Secretary of APGA, Barrister Ifeanyi Mbaeri, Hononourable Chukwuma Umeoji, Hononourable Nonso Smart Okafor and Hononourable Nnamdi Carter Umeoduagu, were not cleared for defiance and insubordination to the party.
The release further said that Messrs Ozoka Odera Ifeanyi and Akachukwu Nwankpo were not cleared because of their inability to meet the eighteen months membership requirement of the party.
Barrister Mbaeri also said that, those not successful at this stage have a right to appeal in writing to the party, even as he explained that the outcome of the screening committee could be vetoed by the APGA’s National Working Committee.
