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.
