The All Progressive Congress, APC has said it has no preferred candidate for the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State.
He spoke in Abuja when inaugurating the party’s Anambra Governorship Election Primary and Appeal Committee, which has Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno and Hassan Lawal as co- chairman.
The APC had scheduled August 26 for the party’s governorship primaries.
“There is nothing like a preferred candidate. It does not exist in APC. So, please disregard such; APC does not have any preferred candidate.
“All aspirants are preferred candidates, and anyone that wins at the primary is alright for the party,” Mr. Izunazo said.
He said that the party had not zoned the governorship ticket to any senatorial zone in the state and urged the committee to disregard such insinuation.
He maintained that the committee´s assignment was to ensure that whoever emerged from the simple majority ballot at the primary was declared winner on the spot.
According to Mr. Izunaso, 4,500 delegates from the 21 local government areas of the state and 326 electoral wards as well as statutory delegates from the state and national levels are expected to vote at the primary.
