Awka - Senator Chris Ngige says the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra has challenged the 2014 local council election scheduled to hold on January 11 in the state.
Ngige was the party’s candidate in the November 16, 2013 governorship poll, won by the All Progressive Grand alliance (APGA).
Ngige made this known at the inauguration of 27-member state interim executive committee of the party in Awka on Tuesday.
He said the party decided to institute the case because there were three different types of voters’ register to be used for the poll.
He said the party would not participate in the poll due to the "flawed voter register,” Our party has gone to court over the local government elections in the state.
"There are three varying voter registers in the state and none of them has been displayed for the poll. If organisers of the election like they can go on with the poll, we shall void it in the court.” he said
The senator criticised Annie Okonkwo, the interim deputy national chairman of the party (South) for claiming in some national dailies that APC would participate in the council poll.
He said that the 27-member interim executive committee would oversee the affairs of the party in the state for three months.
