Awka - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra has described the conduct of Saturday’s local government elections in the state as a “grand charade and deceit”.
Reacting to the conduct of the election in Awka on Saturday, the Interim Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Mr Chukwuma Agufugo, said there was no election in the state in the real sense of the word.
“Be it known to the people of Anambra and Nigerians that there was no election in Anambra State today.
“Any charade of names emerging from this fiction can never be accepted by our people as their genuine representatives,” Agufugo said.
The secretary noted that reports from the field justified the position of the party that APGA and the Anambra State Independent Electoral Commission (ANSIEC) had concluded plans to rig the election.
“Reports of events from all the wards and local governments in the state have shown that our people have decided not to join Gov. Peter Obi and Chief Victor Umeh in chasing mirages,” he said.
Agufugo said the party would take every legal means to ensure that the people of the state were not deceived.
