It was a shock outcome at the presidential primaries for the African Democratic Congress (ADC) as Dumebi Kachikwu emerged as the party’s candidate for the 2023 general elections.

The founder of Roots Television defeated former CBN Deputy Governor, Kingsley Moghalu; prominent businessman, Chukwuka Monye and eight other aspirants to win the party’s ticket. Kachikwu is the younger brother of the former Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu.

A total of 2100 delegates from the 36 states of the federation and the FCT attended the primaries held in Abeokuta, Ogun State. Chairman of the party’s electoral committee, General Ekundayo Opaleye announced the result of the convention noting that Dumebi polled 978 votes while Moghalu polled 589 votes. Chukwuka Monye closed out the top 3 with 339 votes.

In his acceptance speech, Kachikwu promised purposeful leadership to rescue the country from its current challenges.

He said,

“I am here to offer myself to you not because I am better than anybody here, but because I care about the future of our country.” 

“I offer myself because God has given me the main recognition to stand side-by-side with Atiku, Tinubu and to send them into retirement,” 

Kingsley Moghalu joined the ADC in October 2021 hoping to win the Party’s presidential ticket. He was the presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party  in the 2019 Presidential elections where he polled just 21,886 votes.
