This was revealed through the outcome of the screening conducted for prospective governorship aspirants held on June 10, 2021 at the party’s National Secretariat Complex, Abuja.
Others cleared together with Soludo were Damian Chibuzor Okolo, ThankGod Christopher Ibe, and Christopher Okwudili Ezenwankwo
The screening committee, however, disqualified Ifeanyi Odera Ozoka, Nonso Okafor, Sullivan Akachukwu Nwankpo, Michael Chukwuma Umeoji, and Cater Nnamdi Dike Umeoduagu
According to a statement endorsed by the party’s National Organising Secretary, Ifeanyi Mbaeri, some of those disqualified were not cleared for sundry offences, including having spent less than 18 months in the party, defiance and insubordination to party authority and supremacy, among others.
The statement advised that those not cleared are “at liberty to exercise their right of appeal in writing only, as stipulated by Article 10(1) of the APGA Electoral Guidelines for Anambra Governorship Primary Election 2021.”
