Senator Victor Umeh, the former National Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), says that Anambra State is not Imo.
Senator Andy Uba, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in last week’s poll, threatened to challenge APGA’s victory, which Umeh disregarded.
According to Uba, the APGA did not win the election due to suspected irregularities.
He has promised to fight the election’s winner, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, while accusing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of colluding with APGA.
In response, Umeh stated that APGA’s lawyers are prepared to face Uba in court.
He asked people, particularly APGA supporters, not to be frightened by Uba’s threat.
Umeh said the party’s lawyers are completely prepared for the challenge at any moment Uba is ready, speaking at his country home in Aguluzigbo, Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra.
He added that Uba has no mandate to recover, because the people of Anambra voted for APGA.
“The election which took place in all the 21 local government area in the state and he didn’t win any Council area, so what is he going to Court for?”
“The out come of the election, was a true reflection of what Anambra people want. Anambra people didn’t give Andy Uba any mandate. They wanted Soludo, and they voted for him massively.
“We are use to such cases. I have been in Politics for more than 20-years now, so, APGA is not afraid of going to Court with Andy Uba. Nothing will make Anambra people to vote for a party that has nothing to offer.
“Nigeria Judiciary is not an undertaker. Please tell him, we are waiting for him in the Court. Anambra is not Imo State, where a fourth candidate in election suddenly became a governor”, Umeh stated.
