Anambra PDP, APC disagree over poll’s results
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra State have disagreed over the results of the governorship poll.PDP Chairman, Ndubuisi Nwobu, and a chieftain of the APC, Ike Chidolue, expressed the divergent views in separate interviews in Awka, Anambra State capital.
They argued about the process leading to the election, and the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Ado Ekiti.Nwobu in the interview said the election results were not pasted at the various polling units as specified by the Electoral Act.
According to him, INEC, in collaboration with security personnels, barred the media from covering the collation of the results at the polling units.He further held that APC applied an unconventional formula, including monetary inducements to woo voters and denied people their free conscience to vote.
While Nwobu dismissed the results as announced by INEC as a sham, Chidolue adjudged the election to be free and fair, insisting that Fayemi won.Chidolue also acknowledged that INEC performed a credible election in the state, because it was devoid of any fraudulent practice, as the peoples’ votes counted.He further argued that the adequate security put in place by the Federal Government ensured that there was no violence in the election.
