Former Secretary to the Anambra State Government regarded as a “dark horse” Oseloka Obaze has defeated two other aspirants at the just concluded primary election of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) for the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
Obaze, who polled a total of 672 votes today, Monday, will face the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Tony Nwoye, who also defeated a popular politician, Senator Andy Ubah. Nwoye is currently a member of the Federal House of Representatives.
The PDP candidate, according to the result of the primary, defeated his closest rival, Alex Obi-Ogbolu. He got 190 votes while Ifeanyi Ubah, coming third candidate, polled 94 votes.
Six aspirants had indicated interest to battle for the Anambra PDP governorship ticket, but three others – Stella Oduah, John Emeka and Linda Ikpeazu, dropped before the process began.
Earlier before the election, some of the aspirants alleged that the list of delegates to participate in the election had been hijacked.
They called on the PDP Delegate Appeal Panel, led by Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State to look into the matter.
