2019: Senator Stella Oduah Pushes for Independent Candidacy



Senator Stella Oduah

As the 2019 elections draw near, Senator Stella Oduah has said that Independent Candidacy remained the best option for best representation.

Oduah, representing Anambra North Senatorial District said that unlike it was being misunderstood; independent candidacy will help the politics in Nigeria.

According to her, independent candidacy would end the impunity of imposition by political parties and ensure the right candidates are elected either through a political party or as an independent contestant.

She stressed that independence candidacy had worked in other developed countries and it would also work in Nigeria.

“It has worked in the US. Indeed, it is a global best practice. If you bring it back home it will give the electorate the opportunity to choose who they want.

We may not like political party B or political party C, but we like this individual. So, people will have direct access to choose their leaders.

It will also remove the issue of imposition. It will not be a free-for-all. The best will emerge,” she said.

Senator Oduah had championed the independent candidacy bill since the beginning of the 8th Assembly.


The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Selling of tickets for a political position should also be abolished…the thieves among us, are usually the only ones that can afford it.
