JUST IN: Andy Ubah rejects Anambra Election Results, reveals next line of Action

The Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the just concluded Anambra Elections, Chief Andy Ubah has rejected the results from the exercise.

Chief Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA secured the highest number of votes and was subsequently announced winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

In a statement made available to POLITICS NIGERIA on Thursday, Ubah said that there was no way APGA could have won the election as they were already ‘depleted’.

The statement was signed by the spokesperson of the Senator Andy Uba Campaign Organisation, Mr. Jerry Ugokwe;

“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,”.

Uba lamented that in polling units where the Biometric Voters’ Accreditation System (BVAS) malfunctioned, INEC went ahead to conduct the elections manually. He said there were numerous cases where votes announced by INEC exceeded the number of accredited voters in polling units.

He accused the Obiano administration of colluding with INEC adding that APGA was publishing results on its social media handles even before official announcement by the electoral umpire.

“Yet mysteriously, the votes announced in advance by APGA always correspond 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 a slightly above 43,000 votes by INEC.”

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

“From all indications, the only people remaining in APGA at the time of the election were Governor Obiano and his household and a few staff of the Government House as well as Prof. Soludo and his household but majority of the electorate in Anambra State have moved to the APC.”

“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.”

He however called on his supporters to remain peaceful and calm, saying he would seek legal redress and will not relent in pursuing the ‘stolen electoral mandate’ to the limit of the law through all the constitutional means available.
