The All Progressives Congress (APC) will hold its primaries for the Anambra Central senatorial rerun election slated for March on Tuesday.
As at press time, only two persons had collected the nomination forms for the senatorial ticket of the party, as revealed by the party’s National Organising Secretary, Sen. Osita Izunaso. Those who had collected their nomination forms are, former APC Interim Woman Leader, Hon Sharon Ikeazor and Senator Uche Ekwunife.
The APC is conducting a fresh primaries for its aspirants because the candidate of the party in the 2015 senatorial election in Anambra Central, Senator Chris Ngige has declined to contest the rerun senatorial election.
Ngige, now Minister of Labour and Employment, said that he is declining to contest the March rerun senatorial election because he wants to assist the Presidency to tackle the issue of unemployment.
However, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has threatened to go to court should APC or any other party feed a fresh candidate in the rerun.
