As the political tussle over the recently concluded Anambra State governorship election heats up, the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has urged the losing All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Andy Uba, to accept the result and support the winner in the people’s interest.
The pro-Biafra organization made the call in a statement issued by its National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, titled, ‘Don’t heat up Anambra State now, MASSOB advises election losers.’
According to the Best news net, Andy Uba has challenged the election results that had Prof. Charles Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) as the Governor-elect of Anambra State.
In filing a lawsuit, Uba promised to overturn the Independent National Electoral Commission’s proclamation of Soludo as the election’s winner (INEC).
MASSOB reacted to the news by cautioning Uba and anyone considering legal action to think carefully, stressing that their lawyers would always give them hope of winning in court based on their personal interests rather than material proof.
The statement read, “MASSOB commends the people and other residents of Anambra State for adhering to its directives that the election will hold without danger, and defiled all threats by coming out to vote.
“MASSOB wishes to thank all our members in Anambra State who participated in the election.
“We also commend the Independent National Electoral Commission for heeding our encouragement and directives in conducting the governorship election in Anambra state.”
It added, “MASSOB wishes to advise other contestants that lost in the Anambra State governorship election to think twice before approaching courts.
“They should know that their lawyers will always give them hope of winning through the court because of their personal interest.”
