President Muhammadu Buhari, leader of the APC, was amid the foremost persons to congratulate Prof. Charles Soludo for his victory in the poll.
But, Uba in said “it is surprising that APGA that lost nearly 80% of its stalwarts through defection to the APC before the election came out ‘victorious’.
“The outcome of the election was a charade and did not reverberate the wishes of the people of Anambra Province”, said Ambassador Jerry Ugokwe, spokesperson of the Senator Andy Uba Cause Organization.
Division of the statement reads; “Our pop candidate, Senator Andy Uba is a victim of widespread electoral fraud and manipulation by INEC in cohort with the Willie Obiano Regime and the security forces deployed to supervise the Anambra Province Governorship Election
“The elections were characterized by widespread irregularities, intimidation and voter suppression in tell to clear the path for the inglorious ‘victory’ of APGA in the polls.”
The APC suggested that INRC had worked for APGA all through the election and favoured the ruling political party with the results.
The APC wondered how it’s Uba, who who polled over 200,000 votes in its primary election would be allocated slightly 43,000 votes by INEC.
