The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has said that the controversy surrounding the party’s governorship candidate in Nasarawa State has been resolved as the name of immediate past Information Minister, Labaran Maku, has been submitted and accepted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The party’s National Chairman, Mr. Victor Umeh, confirmed this to a Channels Television correspondent.

He stated categorically, as reported last night by Channels: “Mr. Labaran Maku is our governorship candidate in Nasarawa State. We have submitted his name and same has been accepted by INEC.

“There is no question about the party’s governorship candidate in Nasarawa State; Maku’s name has been accepted by the party and INEC.”

Maku’s fate had seemed to be hanging when a rival, Mr. Matthew Unbugaku, last week claimed to be the rightful holder of the APGA ticket.

With Umeh’s confirmation, the coast seems clear for Maku to run for governor on the platform of APGA, after failing to secure the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), where he had been very visible in confronting opposition parties.
