… As Preliminary examination shows that APC and its candidate has grounds to challenge the declaration of Soludo as governor-elect

One of the major candidates of the just concluded Anambra State Governorship Election and the APC party flag bearer in the state, Senator Andy Uba has said that he will obviously be heading to the court in order to challenge the outcome of the election that INEC has already declared APGA candidate, Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo as the winner.

In a press statement made available to 9News Nigeria, Andy Uba thanked his campaign team and the Anambra State APC members for their effort during the election but said that having reviewed alleged evidence of election malpractices said that his team has resolved that they will challenge the election’s outcome in the court.

Press Statement

Members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Anambra state chapter yesterday reviewed the outcome of the November 6, 2021, Anambra governorship election, and resolved that there were enough grounds to judicially interrogate the outcome.

The Party’s candidate in the election, Senator Andy Uba and the top echelon of the party in the state led by the state chairman, Chief Basil Ejidike after an internal debriefing of the party and campaign organisation, discovered that besides having enough grounds to challenge the declaration of Professor Charles Soludo as governor-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, the entire election was not conducted in substantial compliance with the rules governing such exercise.

Senator Uba had at the meeting with the party and campaign organisation yesterday at Marble Arch Hotel, Awka expressed profound gratitude to members of the party, the campaign team and Ndi Anambra, pointing out that though he never takes politics or quest for political office as ‘a do or die’ venture, he would, nonetheless, always follow the dictates of the law in seeking redress.

“I will start by thanking God who kept us all alive throughout the campaign and the election.
Let me once again thank everyone that contributed to this election in one way or the other. Your efforts was not in doubt and I thank you all,” Uba said.

He told the gathering that preliminary investigations show that there are sufficient grounds for him and the party to challenge the declaration of the APGA candidate, Soludo as the winner of the election by
INEC and that the ideal thing to do in the face of such discovery is to approach the tribunal for redress.

“We will be heading to court with the discoveries we have, which shows that the declaration of Soludo as the governor-elect is faulty,” he said.

“As governor, I was removed after 17 days of being sworn in by the Supreme Court of Nigeria and I did not die. So, the current development won’t hurt me. Power belongs to God and Him alone determines who he will entrust it to. This, I can assure you.”

For the APC as represented by the state chairman, Ejidike, the decision to seek judicial redress is, perhaps, the surest way to ensure that those who engineered the electoral heist of November 6, 2021, do not enjoy the fruits of their perfidy.

Ejidike:”Ndi Anambra and the world at large would bear testimony to the fact that, on the eve of the election, the outgoing Governor Willy Obiano administration had, through its Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C. Don Adinuba, told everyone that the APC had written results of 10 Local Government Areas.

“Unknown to us, however, that false alarm was aimed at deflecting attention from the manipulation of the BVAS machine by APGA and a top official of INEC – a fact which a national newspaper had weeks earlier drawn attention to.

“We are heading to Court. APGA and INEC are aware that they compromised during the election and we have evidences to challenge INEC’s declaration in the Court of law,” Ejidike said.

The meeting was attended by several leaders of the party in the state, National Assembly, State Assembly and other members of the party.
