The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the list of the names of candidates and their political parties for the November 6 Anambra Governorship election excluded Professor Charles Soludo, former CBN Governor, candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), including the candidate of the Peoples Democratic party (PDP). The list generated concerns that INEC may have disqualified Soludo and the PDP.

INEC, however, included the name of the governorship candidate of the Okeke-led APGA, Umeh Orji, and his running mate, in response to a court order.

INEC included Andy Uba and his running mate, candidate of the APC, on the list of governorship candidates for the November 6 election.

There was no candidate for the PDP in the November 6 Anambra governorship election as a result of a court order restraining the party’s primary elections.
