Accepting his nomination, Uba thanked the party leadership, faithful and delegates for deeming it worthy to make him the party flag bearer.

He promised to restore PDP to its pride of place in Anambra politics after 16 years of being in the doldrums adding that if elected governor on Nov. 6, he would address the leadership challenges of the stage including local government system.

Uba was a member of the senate between 2003 and 2007.

Meanwhile accreditation for the parallel primary election at the Dora Akunyili Development Centre, was still going on at the time of filing this report.

Mr Philip Shuaibu, Deputy Governor of Edo State who is leading the team of the PDP national delegation had confirmed the withdrawal of Mr Tony Nwoye and Emeka Etiaba (SAN) from the race.

The PDP in Anambra is divided between the Ndubuisi Nwobu led State Executive Committee and Umeaba led Acting Caretaker Committee following an Abuja High Court ruling on June 9.
