Professor Soludo won with 740 votes out of a total of 792 votes cast, defeating three other contenders. The Honourable Okwudili Ezenwankwo, the member representing Orumba North and South in the House of Representatives, came in second with 41 votes. Sir Damian Kola and Chief Thankgodlbeh received 7 and 4 votes, respectively.
As a result of the current results, Professor Charles Soludo has emerged as the APGA’s standard bearer for the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State.
The primary election drew 812 delegates, with 795 of them accredited.
Meanwhile, Soludo was suspended by a faction of the party on Wednesday. The Okeke-led faction accused the Gubernatorial candidate of anti-party behavior.
The faction leaders who announced Soludo’s suspension called the Victor Oye-led faction’s governorship primary election in Awka, Anambra state’s capital, a fraud and a futile endeavor.
The party’s National Working Committee (NWC) had convened earlier on Tuesday and decided to suspend Soludo.
While campaigning in Isuofia, Aguata, he and his entourage were attacked. The three police aides on his entourage were slain in The encounter.
