Ifeanyi Ubah, Stella Oduah, others cleared for PDP Guber ticket

Chairman, Capital Oil Limited, Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, Stella Oduah, former Minister of Aviation, Mr Oseloka Obaze, former Secretary to State Government Anambra state, Dr Alex Obiogolu, Prince John Emeka, and Hon Lynda Ikpeazu have been cleared by the screening committee of the Peoples Democratic Party for the Anambra election.

The six aspirants are now to contest for the party ticket at the primaries to be held in Awka, Anambra state capital on Saturday, 19 August.

Only Akolisa Ufodike was not cleared because he has dual citizenship.

He’s said to carry Canadian passport along with his Nigerian passport.

Section 181 sub section 1 of the Nigerian Constitution bars anyone with dual citizenship from holding elective office in Nigeria.

Chairman of the screening committee, Maina Waziri told newsmen a moment ago at the presentation of certificate to the aspirants that Obaze who has not spent two years in the party was given conditional clearance having applied for waiver and that the National Executive Committee (NEC) which will be meeting tonight will determine his fate, finally.

He enjoined the aspirants to be fair at the party primaries and to keep to their promise that anyone who emerges as the candidate of the party at will receive collective support of others.

…more details later.
