2023 Elections: Uche Nnaji Emerges Enugu APC Governorship Candidate
Mr. Uche Nnaji has emerged the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in Enugu State.
Nnaji, a businessman, is from Akpugo, in Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State.
He was the sole-contestant during the primary election held at the APC South-East zonal office in Enugu on Thursday.
According to the Chairman of the election Committee, Mr. Sheriff Jalaba, Nnaji polled 1070 votes out of 1,100 votes cast by the delegates. Thirty votes were invalid.
The candidate once won the PDP Senatorial ticket for Enugu East Senatorial zone in 1999 but stepped down for Senator Jim Nwobodo.
He will now slug it out with Mr. Peter Mbah who won the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship primary election held on Wednesday.
In a brief remark after he was declared winner, Nnaji said the party was going to political battle to unseat the ruling party in the State.
“We are the one that brought the PDP in the State but they are making mistake,” he said
