Senator Andy Uba has emerged as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Anambra State.

Chairman of the APC primary election committee and governor of Ogun State Dapo Abiodun announced this on Sunday morning.

Uba polled 230, 201 votes out of 348, 490 votes cast at the Golden Tulip Hoel in an open ballot process.

Johnbosco Onunkwo came second with 28, 746 votes.

Others are Chidozie Nwankwo 21, 281, George Moghalu 18, 596, Paul Orajiaka 4, 348, Geoff Onyejeagbu 3, 414, Azuka Okwuosa 17, 189 Nwokafor Daniel 3, 335, Ikoobasi Mokelu 3, 727, Kwebuike Ifeanyi 1, 466, Godwin Okonkwo 5, 907, Ben Etiaba 4, 244, Edozie Madu 3, 636 and Maxwell Okoye 2,540.

The election has caused division in the rank and file of the party in Anambra, with the party’s leader in the state Chris Ngige saying he proposed June 29 for the primary.

Uba emerged governorship candidate despite a protest by Heritage Bank staff last Monday at his residence over alleged indebtedness.
