Also, former Vice Chairman of National Communication Commission (NCC) Ernest Ndukwe and former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters in the state, Dubem Obaze, equally picked senatorial tickets for Anambra South and North respectively.
While accepting his nomination in Awka, Umeh said he would do the party proud at the February 2015 elections. Umeh got all the votes from 475 delegates as two votes were invalidated.
He expressed delight for the enormous support given him by the party members and promised to give them effective representation if he eventually wins the election.
Flanked by Anambra Deputy Governor, Nkem Okeke, Umeh observed that APGA is the only party in the state, which conducted its primaries in the open, adding that he would embark on intensive and extensive mobilisation.
Umeh added: “I feel happy that I was able to subject myself to all the processes of nomination as provided by the party through screening to the final voting, in spite of the fact I am the sole aspirant, all the delegates came out from all the wards to vote for me, they did not take it for granted.
“Even the deputy governor voted as a statutory delegate. The party is one. I assure you that the way the vote was counted here, will be the way it will be counted in February next year.
“I want to assure the members and delegates of my zone that they will not regret nominating me; I am going to fly the flag of our party high in the forthcoming senatorial election with every sense of commitment and dedication, victory is our target and I will move around the state to mobilize our people for the final victory,” he said.
