Andy Uba questions Soludo’s victory

Must Read

Senator Andy Uba’s campaign organization has questioned the results of the just-concluded gubernatorial election in Anambra state, as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The election result was condemned by the campaign organization as  “a charade and did not reflect the wishes of the people of Anambra state.”

Ambassador Jerry Ugokwe, who signed the statement on behalf of the campaign organization on Thursday in Abuja, claimed that the APC’s “Senator Andy Uba is a victim of widespread electoral fraud and manipulation by INEC in cahoots with the Willie Obiano regime and the security forces deployed to oversee the Anambra State Governorship Election.”

The election result was condemned by the campaign organization as  “a charade and did not reflect the wishes of the people of Anambra state.”

Ambassador Jerry Ugokwe, who signed the statement on behalf of the campaign organization on Thursday in Abuja, claimed that the APC’s “Senator Andy Uba is a victim of widespread electoral fraud and manipulation by INEC in cahoots with the Willie Obiano regime and the security forces deployed to oversee the Anambra State Governorship Election.”

“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’. A sitting APGA Deputy Governor, seven members of the House of Representatives, 10 members of the Anambra State House of Assembly, the APGA party’s member of Board of Trustees, many serving SA’s, SSA’s, in addition to a serving PDP Senator all defected to the APC very timely before the election, yet APGA emerged ‘victorious. This is quite ridiculous!”

“There was definitely no way the carcass of APGA could have defeated the APC without the active collusion and manipulation by INEC and the Obiano Administration.

“What happened on November 6, 2021 fell far below the acceptable standard of a free and fair election and can best be described as an electoral fraud perpetrated by the INEC, Willie Obiano Administration and the security forces.

According to the statement, Governor Obiano and his family, as well as a few Government House workers, as well as Prof. Soludo and his family, were the sole APGA supporters at the time of the election, but the majority of Anambra voters had switched to the APC.
