Ozigbo identifies shortcomings that marred Anambra guber election

Mr. Valentine Ozigbo, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the recently concluded gubernatorial election in Anambra State, has criticised the deficiencies of several government institutions.

He said that security services failed to provide a calm atmosphere for campaigns to take place because their staff were missing from numerous polling stations, causing polls to be canceled or held in chaotic and fraudulent circumstances.

In a message given to reporters on Thursday, Ozigbo expressed his views on the outcome of the state’s just ended gubernatorial election.

He accused the Governor Willie Obiano government of using funds and resources to corrupt, coerce and intimidate voters, and further posited that all of these led to the disenfranchisement of the greater percentage of voters and straining the course of democracy.

According to the flagbearer, “I will be dedicating time to champion the positive change we need to ensure that future elections are truly free and fair and that the will of the electorate prevails.

“Denominational politics was also a factor. We need to do a lot more to ensure that competence is never sacrificed on this altar and that democracy is practiced in line with its truest tenets”.

Meanwhile, Ozigbo congratulated Soludo on his resounding victory in the election.
