APC Candidate, Andy Uba Rejects Result Of Anambra Guber Election, Heads To Court

KanyiDaily recalls that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had on Wednesday morning declared Charles Soludo, a candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), as the winner of the Anambra governorship election.

The APGA candidate secured 112,229 votes to defeat his two major rivals — Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who got 53,807 votes, and Andy Uba who secured 43,285 votes.

In a statemen signed by the Spokesman of his campaign organization, Ambassador Jerry Ugokwe, the APC candidate rejected the outcome of the election which he said was a ‘charade’ and did not reflect the wishes of the people of Anambra State.

Uba also announced his intention to challenge the winner of the election, Soludo, up to the Supreme Court, saying there was no way the APGA could have defeated the APC without active collusion and manipulation by the INEC and the Governor Willie Obiano-led administration.

Andy Uba Rejects Outcome Of Anambra Election

The statement read in part, “While we appeal to our supporters to remain peaceful and calm, we will not relent in pursuing our stolen electoral mandate to the limit of the law through all the constitutional means available as the facts on ground did not in any way reflect the outcome of the elections as announced by the obviously compromised INEC.

“Our popular candidate, Senator Andy Uba is a victim of widespread electoral fraud and manipulation by INEC in cohorts with the Willie Obiano regime and the security forces deployed to oversee the Anambra State Governorship Election.

“The elections were characterised by widespread irregularities, intimidation and voter suppression in order to clear the path for the inglorious ‘victory’ of APGA in the polls.

“For instance, in polling units where the Biometric Voters’ Accreditation System malfunctioned, INEC went ahead to conduct the elections manually.

“There were numerous cases where votes announced by INEC exceeded the number of accredited voters in polling units.

“Another clear manifestation of collusion between the Obiano Administration and INEC was the publishing of results on the Social Media handles of APGA even before official announcement by INEC.”

“Yet mysteriously, the votes announced in advance by APGA always corresponded correctly with the official figures released by INEC.

“It is inconceivable that our candidate, who polled over 200,000 votes in the APC primary election would be allocated slightly above 43,000 votes by INEC.

“It is surprising that APGA that lost almost 80% of its stalwarts through defection to the APC before the election came out ‘victorious’.

Meanwhile, Soludo has reacted to his victory in the Anambra election by thanking his family, as well as leaders and members of APGA for their support towards his victory which he described as the will of God.
