NIGERIA: Uba Is Not Our Candidate – PDP Tells INEC

UBA IS NOT OUR CANDIDATE, PDP TELLS INEC.The Peoples Democratic Party has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission not to tamper with the nomination of Mr. Tony Nwoye as its candidate in the November 16 governorship election in Anambra State. The party in a letter by its counsel, Mr. J.K. Gadzama (SAN) and Managing Partner, J.N Egwuonwu to INEC chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega on Sunday night in Abuja also alerted the commission to media reports that Senator Andy Uba had been upheld as the party’s candidate for the election following a court order. 
 
According to PDP, the recognition of Nwoye was necessary to ensure that the polity was not unduly overheated as the commission’s silence on the issue had led to misconceptions especially in the media. The letter was copied to the Secretary of INEC; Chairman Legal Services Committee of INEC; Director of Legal Services in INEC; Federal Commissioner (Political Party Monitoring); Director of Political Party Monitoring; PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and the Acting National Secretary of PDP.
