The All Progressives Congress, APC, has alleged that the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chukwuma Soludo, and the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano conspired to rig the Anambra gubernatorial election.

The accusation was made by Basil Ejidike, the Chairman of APC Anambra, who stated that the results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC have been rejected by the ruling party.

Ejidike made the statement on Sunday night, vowing to contest the results at the Supreme Court if INEC insists on declaring Soludo as the winner of the election.

He added that the results must not be accepted as the people of the state want an APC governor.

The Anambra APC chairman called for the election to be cancelled and a new date fixed for a fresh conduct of the poll.

The latest development comes after the election was declared inconclusive as the poll has been billed to hold in Ihiala on Tuesday.

However, APGA candidate, Prof Soludo bagged 18 out of the 20 Local Government Areas announced by INEC.

“We want the whole world to hear our voice that we will never accept the outcome of the Anambra gubernatorial election.” He said.

“The candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) and the sitting Governor, Willie Obiano, manipulated the whole electoral system and we will stand to resist it.”

“We virtually won in all the local government, but Willie Obiano and Charles Soludo, through instrumentality, corrupt-minded INEC officers, subverted the whole process in favour of APGA.

“But if INEC goes ahead to announce the results, we will definitely challenge the election process at the court of law, up to Supreme Court. Nobody can intimidate us.”
