Former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo has won all the 21 local government areas of Anambra State in the governorship primary election held in Awka on Wednesday by the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, for the November 6 election.

He was announced as the winner on Wednesday night after the keenly contested primary held in Akwa, the state capital.

The election took place despite controversy rocking the party after a faction led by Jude Okeke accused the Victor Oye-led faction of alleged refusal to submit the statutory 21 days notice on the Special Ward Congress to the Commission.

The Publicity Secretary of the Okeke-led faction of the party, Ikechukwu Chukwunyere, made the allegations on Monday in Abuja while addressing journalists on the development within the party.

Chukwunyere specifically said the Oye faction did not duly notify INEC on the plan to hold ward congresses ahead of the governorship poll within the 21 days recommended by its regulations and Section 85 of the Electoral Act.

The election is set to hold on November 6, 2021.
