OrderPaperToday – The race for the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the forthcoming rerun election in Anambra senatorial district remains open as the party declared that it has not chosen a candidate yet.
This lays to rest reports in the media that Ms. Sharon Ikpeazor has been chosen as the candidate of the party ahead of Mrs. Uche Ekwunife who recently defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
But the national secretariat of the APC in a statement Thursday signed by Mai Mala Buni, its national secretary, said the party is yet to have a candidate for the polls.
The statement read: “The APC warns against the declaration of any result from the Anambra Central Senatorial primary election conducted by the party.
“Senator Domingo Obende who was duly appointed by the party to conduct the primaries is yet to declare a final result, hence any other result announced from any quarter is null and void.
“The media and general public is advised to await completion of the exercise.”
