Former president and chief executive officer of Transnational Corporation of Nigeria Plc (Transcorp), Valentine Ozigbo, has emerged as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State.
The 50-year-old banker polled 62 out of 218 votes to beat 13 other aspirants who were on the ballot.
It was gathered that some aspirants had withdrawn from the primary out of protest because of the new list of delegates that was released by the National Working Committee of the party.
Another faction of the party had held a parallel primary elsewhere in Awka which produced Ugochukwu Uba as its own candidate.
The candidates defeated by Mr Ozigbo included Uche Ukwunife, a serving senator, who scored 44 votes and came third in the primary which was conducted late into Saturday night.
Mr Ozigbo will be contesting against a former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Charles Soludo, who is the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), and Andy Uba who will be contesting on the platform of the All Progressive Congress, APC, for the November 6 governorship election in the state.
