Master Sunny-Neville Uchendu, an All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) chieftain, says that President Muhammadu Buhari exhibited unusual attributes of statesmanship in the conduct of the Nov 6 Anambra governorship election.
Uchendu made the statement piece reacting to the statement of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo as the winner of the 2021 governorship election in Anambra Province by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Uchendu, the Deputy Manager, Diaspora Outreach and Prof. Chukwuma Soludo 2021 Drive Organisation, spoke in an interview with the Word Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on quarta-feira in Awka.
He said it was remarkable that Buhari as a fellow member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), did not exhibit partisanship in spite of his political party fielding a candidate in the election.
“What is to a greater extent remarkable is that some people were dropping the proper noun of Mr President as their joker in the Anambra election.
“But for Soludo to have won the election shows that many people with sinister motives have been spoiling the good proper noun of our president without him getting involved in their negative activities,” he said.
Uchendu, popularly known as Mayor of Atlanta, commended both INEC and security agencies for their roles in making the exercise peaceful.
He said though the introduction of Biomodal Verification Accreditation Scheme (BVAS) device used in the election had some issues, he maintained that the commission should improve on some flaws noticed.
“The new BVAS device is good because it made it hard and disappointed people banking on rigging.
“But I believe that INEC should create certain that the adhoc workers operating the devices should be properly trained as they exhibited poor handling of the device,” he said.
