The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has said the party is assembling a team of lawyers ahead of the legal tussle between the Anambra State Governor-elect Chukwuma Soludo and the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just concluded Anambra governorship election.
A former APGA National Chairman, Senator Victor Umeh, said this at a press briefing at Aguluizigbo in the Anaocha Local Government Area on Monday.
Uba had, while faulting the election results, said, “Investigations show that there are sufficient grounds for me and the party to challenge the declaration of the APGA candidate, Soludo as winner of the election by INEC and that the ideal thing to do in the face of such discovery, is to approach the tribunal for redress.”
In response, Umeh said, “Our lawyers are fully prepared for the challenge, any time Uba is ready. Uba has no mandate to reclaim because the people of Anambra voted for APGA.
“The election took place in all the 21 local government areas in the state and he didn’t win any council area, so what is he going to court to do? The outcome 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.
“The Nigeria Judiciary is not an undertaker. Please tell him, we are waiting for him in court. Anambra is not Imo State, where a fourth candidate in the election suddenly became a governor.”
