Today, a court seating in Port Harcourt wrote another page in the unfolding saga in the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] selection process for the November 16, 2013 gubernatorial elections in Anambra State.

The federal high court in Port Harcourt in a ruling delivered by Justice Salami Aliyu disqualified the candidacy of Comrade Tony Nwoye on the grounds of irregularity in the documents presented to the PDP and the payment of taxes.

The Judge then declared Nicolas Ukachukwu as the candidate who won the PDP primaries conducted by the Emeakayi-led PDP faction. Nicholas Ukachukwu had polled second in the Emeakayi-led PDP primary election.
