Following the November 6 Anambra elections, the APC in the state has reportedly stated that he will pursue the tribunal because it has enough evidence that the elections were manipulated.
This was reportedly disclosed by Mr Ikechukwu Onyia, the Deputy Director of the Senator Andy uba Governorship Campaign Organization.
According to him, “It is pertinent to emphasise for the umpteenth time that Senator Uba’s determination to diligently pursue his petition is propelled by his genuine desire to use the instrumentality of government to set new development agenda for the state and prove that Anambra can be better than what it currently is under APGA’s 16 years watch.”
He noted that, “Therefore, in line with his earlier stand that there are valid grounds to challenge the results declared by INEC, Uba will go on with his petition at the tribunal challenging INEC’s declaration of Soludo as the governor-elect.”
He maintained that, “Like some people are saying, ‘Anambra is not Imo’ because of the Supreme Court intervention, but they have forgotten that before Imo, court had removed two governors and APGA benefitted.”
He disclosed that, “Court removed Ngige and APGA benefited, court removed Uba, 17 days of being sworn in, not because Uba’s election was fraudulent, but because court said Peter Obi’s tenure has not elapsed; again, APGA benefited. So, before Imo, APGA had benefited in the removal of two governors in Anambra.”
He stated that, “The victims of the judgments did not kill themselves. So, if after judicial interrogation and they found out that Uba’s petition has merit, they should declare him and give him judgement, APGA will tow the same line Uba and Ngige did when they lost.”
