Ebonyi PDP Crisis: INEC recognises Odii faction

Ebonyi PDP Crisis: INEC recognises Odii faction

From Chijioke Agwu, Abakaliki

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has published the names of Ebonyi State PDP candidates for the 2023 general elections.

It was gathered that the successful candidates emerged from the faction loyal to one of the governorship candidates in the state, Dr Ifeanyi Odii,

Odii and his line-up had won by a wide margin the party’s primary elections which were held on May 28 and 29, 2022.

The primary election that produced Odii was reportedly monitored by INEC and was adopted by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP as the authentic PDP primary election in Ebonyi State in obedience to a court order.

The Federal High Court had nullified the factional primary election of June 4 and 5, 2022, organised by Sen. Obinna Ogba.

In a statement released Tuesday by the spokesman of Anyichuks Campaign Organisation, Chief Abia Onyike, listed the PDP National Assembly (Senate) candidates for Ebonyi State as released by INEC for the 2023 General Elections as follows: Lazarus Nweru Ogbe (Ebonyi Central Senatorial District), Sen Dr Samuel Ominyi Egwu (Ebonyi North Senatorial District) and Sen Michael Ama Nnachi (Ebonyi South Senatorial District).
