Checking through the document which was published on INEC's official website, Legit.ng notes that no candidate was listed for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The commission left the party's space blank and put "court order" under the remark column.
Similarly, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, APGA's factional candidate, is missing from the list. Instead, the national electoral body listed the name of another APGA factional candidate, Chukwuma Michael Umeoji, citing a court order.
