Soludo wins 18 LGs as APC accuses APGA of rigging


The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has cleared 18 local government areas in the results announced so far by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The All Progressive Congress (APC) which has Senator Andy Uba as its candidate has not won any LGA according to results announced so far by the commission. However, the ruling party has alleged APGA of rigging.

The Chairman of the APC in the state, Chief Basil Ejidike, said, “What is happening in Anambra is never an election, but big time electoral fraud and malpractice. 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 and the sitting governor, Willie Obiano, manipulated the whole electoral system and we will stand to resist it.

“Ndi Anambra wants an APC governor and there’s nothing anyone can do to deny them that opportunity. We virtually won in all the local governments, but Willie Obiano and Charles Soludo, through the instrumentality of corrupt INEC officers, subverted the whole process in favour of APGA.

“We want INEC to cancel the election and fix a date for a fresh election devoid of manipulation and malpractices. But if INEC goes ahead to announce the results, we will definitely challenge the election process in the court of law, up to the Supreme Court. Nobody can intimidate us.”
