Anambra Polls: Kinsmen Warn APC Candidate, Andy Uba, Not To Challenge Soludo In Court

Following the outcome of the Anambra polls, with Prof. Charles Soludo, emerging as the winner, the Aguata kinsmen of the candidate of the APC in the November 6 governorship election, Andy Uba, have reportedly warned him to refrain from the idea of taking the governor-elect  to court over the poll.

According to earlier reports, Uba had stated that,  “Now that INEC has declared the result and announced the APGA candidate, Professor Charles Chukwuma as winner, I urge that we remain law-abiding. Having met with my team, party hierarchy, etc and analysing data from our field officers, we can boldly state that preliminary check shows that we have grounds to challenge INEC declaration at the tribunal in line with the electoral process.”

However, the leader of Uba’s kinsmen, Peter Okala, in a statement on Sunday, reportedly urged the APC candidate to refrain from the  idea or face consequences from them.

The statement read that, “We the 45 communities of the Old Aguata Union do hereby call on all the losers to show spirit of sportsmanship as we are disposed to take all necessary steps, both legal, spiritual and otherwise to discourage all manners of distraction because our expectation is high.”

This is coming after Soludo, under APGA, won 19 local government areas, with a total of 112,229, and the APC candidate, Uba under APC, is yet to concede defeat.
