A gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Ebonyi State, Prof Bernard Odoh has announced the nomination of Dr Nkata Chuku, from Okposi in Ohaozara Local Government Area of the State, as his running mate.
Odoh presented Nkata as his running mate at a press conference in Abakaliki on Wednesday which was monitored by The Eastern Updates.
Nkata, 47, is a native of Okposi Okwu in the southern senatorial district of the state.
Information gathered by our correspondent indicated that the APGA deputy governorship candidate was born on 29th December 1975 to Sir and Lady Nwani Chuku of Okposi-Okwu, Okposi in Ohaozara LGA of Ebonyi State.
Meanwhile, a group known as Ebonyi Elders Forum has pledged their support for the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of next year’s general elections.
According to the elders, the former Lagos Governor is the best person to lead Nigeria at this point in time given the enormous challenges confronting the country.
The Eastern Updates reports that this endorsement is coming just a few days after Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi declared that the People of the State would be voting for Tinubu and not Peter Obi of the Labour party.
