Aguluzigbo (Anambra) – The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) says it is rejecting the results of the National Assembly elections announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Chief Victor Umeh, the National Chairman of the party and Senatorial candidate for the constituency, rejected the result in a world press conference in Aguluzigbo, Anaocha Local Government Area of the state.
Umeh said the result did not have any relationship with what transpired at the polling units, adding that APGA candidates would challenge them in court.
The chairman described the results as ‘concocted’ because they were not generated through the right channels of polling units, wards, local governments and constituency.
He said APGA was armed with result sheets form EC8A from the polling units with which they wished to reclaim their mandate through the courts.
“The elections started late at about 1 p.m. after the initial card reader problem.
“From all indications, there was no collation of results from ward to local government; only for them to announce results of the elections.
“I want to tell you that the figures declared by INEC were concocted at night to quickly declare the PDP candidates winners.
“We, therefore, reject the results and will contest them at the tribunal, to regain the mandate given to the party by the people.”
Umeh said that APGA’s support for President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid was ‘unflinching’, but criticised the desperation of PDP candidates in the  state.
The other candidates of the party in the senatorial district were Chief Godson Ezenagu for Awka North and Awka South, Mr Ifeanyi Ibezi for Idemili North and South Federal constituencies and Mr Dozie Nwankwo for Anocha, Dunukofia and Njikoka Federal constituency.
