Former governor of Anambra state and a founding member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chris Ngige, has been declared the candidate to fly the party’s flag at the November 16 governorship election in the state.

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, broke the news Wednesday afternoon.

According to him, the choice of Nigige was made after a truce reached over a deadlock that had threatened the unity of the party in the state.

He further disclosed the south-east caucus of the party agreed on the candidature.

Main rival, Senator Annie Okonkwo, will lead Ngige’s campaign, an indication that he may be given an automatic ticket to return to the Senate in 2015 or hold a key position in Anambra government if APC wins the November poll.

“The choice of Ngige was reached through a consensus. Those who thought we shall not succeed today have been disappointed,” Okorocha said.
