Chekwas-OkorieThe National Chairman of the United Progressives Party, UPP, Chekwas Okorie, has emerged the party’s presidential candidate for the February 14 presidential election.

Mr. Okorie was elected as the party’s flag bearer at its national convention held at Binez Hotel, Aba, Abia State on Thursday.

It would be recalled that the UPP was registered as a political party in October 2012.

A statement by the media coordinator of the UPP, Orji Okorie, on Thursday, said the party’s flags were also presented to its gubernatorial candidates.

Those who received the flags are Osmond Ukanacho (Imo), Chris Akomas (Abia), Binta Gwarzo (Kano).
