Despite the publication of Chief Okey Eze’s name as the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Imo state, Dr. Casmir Anyanwu has declared himself the authentic candidate of the party. 

Anyanwu, who called on his supporters to ignore Eze’s listing by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), maintained that his name could not be illegally substituted with any other person, adding that he had served the electoral umpire a court injunction to that effect.

He said that a court of competent jurisdiction had restrained INEC from taking the action they took by pasting the name; pointing out that the commission had disobeyed the court and has about 14 days to remedy it or face the consequences.

He, therefore, enjoined his supporters to remain calm, as every necessary action was being taken to reverse the illegality.
