Chief Maxi Okwu, a radical lawyer and politician who was appointed Acting National Chairman following the sacking of Chief Victor Umeh by an Enugu High Court on February 8, is in the race for the position of substantive National Chairman. He is being challenged by Chief Joe-Martins Uzodike, a lawyer and one-time governorship candidate currently serving as the Anambra State Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism.
