Gov. Inuwa Yahaya has been assigned a special assignment by the APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) appointed Gov. Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State to head its five-member Anambra Governorship Primary Election Appeal Committee on Monday in Abuja. Yahaya is a former governor of the state.

Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Chairman of the Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), made the announcement in a statement.

A formal inauguration of the committee, according to him, will take place on June 30 at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.

Sen. Julius Ucha, Hajia Maryam Salifu, and Alhaji Bukar Dalori were also named as members of the committee, with Dr. Ijeoma Arodiogbu serving as secretary, according to him.

It is expected that the committee will hear all appeals arising from the conduct of our primary election in accordance with our party’s Constitution and guidelines for the nomination of candidates,” Akpanudoedehe said in a press release.

Meanwhile, the APC Anambra governorship election primary, which took place on June 26th, was reported to have attracted 14 candidates.

Sen. Andy Uba, Nwokafor Amobi Daniel, Dr. George Moghalu, Mr. Paul Izuchukwu Orajiaka, Mr. Edozie Madu, and Dr. Chidozie Nwankwo are among the aspirants for the position.

Mr. Maxwell Okoye, Col. Geoffrey Onyejegbu, Mr. Azuka Okwuosa, Onwa Mokelu, Igwebuike Hygers, Godwin Okonkwo, Beneth Etiaba, and Onunkwo Obinna are among the others who have been nominated.

Uba, who is running for governor of Anambra again, was declared the winner of the APC primary election committee for the state by Gov. Dapo Abiodun, who is also running for governor of the state.

He was sworn in as governor of Anambra on May 27, 2007, after winning the governorship election by a wide margin in 2007.

Nevertheless, on June 14, 2007, barely two weeks and three days after being sworn in, Uba was removed from office by a judgment of the Supreme Court, which ruled that the tenure of the then incumbent, Gov. Peter Obi of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), had not yet ended.

According to the court, the election in which Uba emerged victorious was declared null and void because it was conducted in violation of the law by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which was in violation of the law.

Despite the fact that Uba was originally from Uga, Aguata Local Government Area (LGA) in Anambra South, he had since made tenacious efforts to claim the state’s highest political position.

In April 2011, he was elected to the United States Senate to represent his district, where he served for two terms.
