The All Progressives Congress, APC, has accused Chukwuma Soludo, the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, and Willie Obiano, the governor of Anambra State, of manipulating the state’s inconclusive governorship election.
The comment was made by Basil Ejidike, the state chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), while disputing the results so far announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
In a statement released late Sunday, Ejidike promised to appeal the results to the Supreme Court if INEC insists on declaring Soludo the election winner.
Ejidike promised that he would never accept the results of the election since the people of the state want an APC governor.
He called for the cancellation of the election and a new date fixed for a fresh conduct of the poll.
According to Ejidike: “We want the whole world to hear our voice that we will never accept the outcome of the Anambra gubernatorial election.
“The candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) and the sitting Governor, Willie Obiano, manipulated the whole electoral system and we will stand to resist it.”
“We virtually won in all the local government, but Willie Obiano and Charles Soludo, through instrumentality, corrupt-minded INEC officers, subverted the whole process in favour of APGA.
“But if INEC goes ahead to announce the results, we will definitely challenge the election process at the court of law, up to Supreme Court. Nobody can intimidate us.”
