Moghalu, Monye Loses Presidential Ticket to Dumebi
It was a surprising outcome yesterday during the African Democratic Congress primary election as Dumebi Kachikwu, a media entrepreneur has defeated Kingsley Moghalu and Ckukwu Monye to clinch the party ticket.
Mr Kachikwu scored 977 votes against Mr Moghalu’s 589 votes. Chukwuka Monye came third with 339 votes at the primary exercise in Abeokuta on Wednesday night.
Mr Kachikwu’s victory was immediately slammed by opponents, who said the Roots Nigeria CEO “dollarised” the process by bribing delegates.
“I appreciate Prof. Moghalu and other credible aspirants for a spirited fight even though we didn’t make it. The fight to rescue this country from the brink of disaster is still on…. Monye is committed to this” Mr Monye said. “Will communicate who we will support.”
Mr Kachikwu is the younger brother of former minister Ibe Kachikwu.
