Uche Nnaji on Thursday clinched the All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial ticket in Enugu State ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Nnaji who was the sole aspirant to the position scored 1,070 votes to emerge victorious.
Naija News reports that five elected state delegates from each of the 260 wards in the state participated in the primaries.
The Guber candidate who is from Akpugo in Nkanu West Local Government Area of the state came to the limelight in 1999 after he won the senatorial ticket of the then Alliance for Democracy, AD.
He was later to step down for Chief Jim Nwobodo, who was eventually elected senator for the senatorial district.
Uche Nnaji is a brother to Hon Nnoli Nnaji representing Nkanu East and West Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.
The PDP had yesterday elected Mr Peter Mba, a lawyer, as its governorship standard-bearer for the 2023 general elections in Enugu State.
