Umahi Denies Accusing Obiano, Soludo Of Rigging Anambra Governorship Election

In a statement on Monday by his spokesman, Nwaze Francis, the governor distanced himself from a report that quoted him saying that the Anambra election was marred with irregularities.

Governor Umahi also advised the public to disregard the fake news which equally implied that he rejected the outcome of the election and threatened to seek redress in court.

The statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to an infantile Facebook post on the timeline of one Chijinkem, alleging that the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr David Umahi, declared that the last Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Anambra was fret with irregularities.

“The poster equally implied that the Governor rejects the outcome on behalf of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and people of Anambra State and threatened to seek redress.

“Ordinarily, we wouldn’t have bothered responding to the ill-fated post by the attention-seeking fellow but we have elected to clear the doubt of some discerning minds.

“First, His Excellency, Governor David Umahi, at no point, made such remarks about the Anambra State Gubernatorial election.

“It is, however, uncomplimentary to imagine His Excellency speaking on behalf of the Standard-bearer of the APC and a Party that has a full-fledged structure, moreover, in an election that its outcome has not been concluded by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“Going by the foregoing, we hereby urge the general public to disregard the post as it has no iota of truth in it.

“We also like to use this medium to remind the poster and other Social Media purveyors of fake news that the State Law on fake news is very much in place to deal with potential recalcitrant.

“The General Public is advised to ignore the post as it did not emanate from His Excellency, the Governor of Ebonyi State.”

KanyiDaily recalls that the APC Chairman, Basil Ejidike had also dispelled the reports that it called for the cancellation of the Anambra governorship election.
