THE Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Anambra State has published the names of 37 registered political parties and their candidates and deputies for the November 18, 2017 governorship election in the state.

Conspicuously missing in the list is Mr. Hygers Igwebuike, the candidate of Chief Martin Agbaso’s faction of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, whose primary was held in a remote village in Orumba South local government area without the supervision of officials of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Some of the candidates and their deputies include Chief Willie Obiano and Dr. Nkem Okeke of APGA, Dr. Tony Okechukwu Nwoye and Mr. Dozie Ikedife Arinze of All Progressives Congress (APC) and Mr. Oseloka Henry Obaze and Mr. Chidi A. Onyemelukwe of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Nkwachukwu Orji said in Awka that the exercise was in line with what was required of the commission by the law.

According to him, INEC had put in place all necessary mechanisms to ensure a transparent and hitch free election, appealing to the various political parties in the state to campaign peacefully to help the commission deliver on its mandate of free, fair and credible election.
