The News Agency of Nigeria had reported that no fewer than 13 aspirants, including Prof. Charles Soludo, Chief George Muoghalu, Chief Barth Nwibe, Mr. Obinna Okonkwo, Chief Paul Chukwuma and Chief Obinna Uzor, Dr Chike Obidigbo, Chie Raph Okeke, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, Chief Tony Nwoye, Sen. Uche Ekwunife, Sen. Andy Ubah and Prince Donatus Okonkwo have indicated interest to contest the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.

Further checks by News Punch observed that 11 out of the 13 aspirants were either PDP member or former. Prominent of them is Senator Andy Ubah, who is still a sitting Senator under the PDP.

Below is a brief description of some of the aspirants either still in PDP or had defected or planning to defect:

1. Senator Andy Ubah , an incumbent PDP Senator
2. Senator Uche Nwunife, a former PDP Senator
3. Professor Charles Soludo, a former PDP Governorship candidate
4. Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah, a former PDP Gladiator and founder of Transformation Ambassador of Nigeria (TAN).

6. Chief Barth Nwibe, a former PDP leader.
7.. Mr Obinna Okonkwo, a former PDP leader.

The state chairman of the party, Mr. Emeka Ibe, on Tuesday told newsmen that there would not be automatic ticket for any of the aspirants,
stressing that they would all participate in the primaries for selection.

He said, “We will give all the aspirants equal playing ground. There is no special interest for any of the aspirants.

“We will hold transparent primaries for them. They are all qualified to unseat Governor Willie Obiano.

“Any of them who emerges as our candidate is capable of removing Obiano from office.”

The chairman announced that the party would commence continuous membership registration next week to accommodate many people wanting to join APC in the state.

Ibe, however, explained that any person with criminal record would not be allowed to join the party.

He affirmed that there was no zoning arrangement in the party, stressing that new members have equal rights as old members.
