The youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has advised the Anambra Province governor-elect Prof. Chukwuma Soludo not to be carried absent by celebration.
The youth grouping said this in a statement by its President-Full general, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike.
He said Soludo and his political party, the All Progressives Congress, APGA, should not forget that the All Progressives Congress, APC, is deeply pained by the victory.
Okwu observed that this was to a greater extent so as the political party’s national cause council was led by Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo Province, who he said could still fountain surprises.
He said, “We are happy that against all odds the Anambra Province governorship election has come up and gone, successfully too.
“It is fifty-fifty to a greater extent cheering that a man of the people, character and ideas, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo came out victorious from that exercise.
“But in view of past times antecedents, we are asking the victorious political party, APGA, not to take anything for granted, particularly with the rejection of the termination by the APC candidate, Senator Andy Uba. It should not also be forgotten that Gov. Hope Uzodinma was the leader of the political party’s cause council and we all know how he became governor from a 4th place.
“Soludo’s APGA should, thus, not slumber with 2 eyes closed. They should be watchful of every stair the APC and its candidate takes until every thing in relation to this election is laid to relaxation.”
Okwu, notwithstanding, urged the APC not to toy with the mandate freely given to Soludo by the Anambra electorate as it would only worsen the security state of affairs in the S-East.
“We know they have the constitutional right to approach the tribunal whether they sense aggrieved, but it is not essential at all as Anambra election has been accepted by the bulk, including other candidates to be credible.
“Andy Uba should consider the largest involvement of Ndigbo by resisting the temptation of going to judicature,” Okwu advised.
