EBONYI 2023: APC Produces Two Governorship Candidates To Replace Engr. Dave Umahi.

The 3 men.

There are two Governorship candidates who have emerged from the two parallel primaries held to determine who would fly the flag of the party in Ebonyi State.

In the Governor Dave Umahi’s primary, the Speaker of the Ebonyi State House of Assembly, Francis Ogbonna Nwaifuru emerged winner after scoring at total of 743 votes to defeat Julius Ali Ucha, 22 votes, Edward Nkwegu, 8 votes and Elias Mbam Nwalem who scored 10 votes.

But in another twist, the former Chairman of the Revenue Mobilisation and Fiscal Commission, Elias Mbam Nwalem held another primary in Abakaliki the Ebonyi State capital where he emerged the winner of the Governorship ticket after scoring 741 votes according to information available to us.

Precious Eze’s Blog” had reached out to the Commissioner for Information in Ebonyi State, Mr. Uchenna Orji, to confirm these informations and to ascertain the veracity of the claimed parallel primaries, but he neither picked our calls, nor returned them as at press time.

But it is likely that the primary election held by the faction of the Governor, Dave Umahi, which had the Speaker as its candidate would stand the test of time.
