Federal High Court orders INEC to publish Ozigbo’s name as PDP candidate

By Ifeoma Ejiofor

A Federal High Court in Awka Monday ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to publish the name of Valentine Ozigbo as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the November 6 Anambra State Governorship Election.

It would be recalled that a Federal High Court in Abuja had on Thursday July 15th restrained INEC, from publishing the name of the PDP candidate, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo, in a suit which on Friday July 16th was withdrawn paving the way for a fresh order to INEC to publish the name of the PDP Candidate on its list of candidates for the election.

Valentine Ozigbo emerged the PDP flag-bearer for the Anambra State guber election after polling the majority of votes at the party’s primary election held on Saturday, June 26, 2021, at the Prof Dora Akunyili Women Development Center, Awka.

He consequently received his certificate of return from the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, after his victory was certified by the party’s National Working Committee.
