Valentine Ozigbo, the People’ s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the gubernatorial elections in Anambra, has said the race is not over and remains a ” winner” for him as reported by PMNEWS.
Ozigbo stated this on Monday at a press conference in Awka.
He expressed the hope that the PDP would fill the loophole if electoral officials and materials were in time for the 9.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) suspended the Anambra elections on Sunday evening after holding the Had published results from 20 of the 21 LGAs with the exception of Ihiala.
According to INEC, the main parties and their results were: All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), 103, 946, PDP51, 322, All Progressives Congress (APC) 42, 942 and Young Progressives Party 20, 917
Ozigbo said Anambra’ s elections would continue there on Tuesday as long as the benefit was less than the number of registered voters in places where there was evidence that the elections did not take place.
Apart from Ihiala with more than 148, 000 registered voters, there have been places where the party has shown that there are no elections with more than 100, 000 registered voters.
He said that only with continued awareness could Ihiala improve the outcome, adding that INEC must make sure voters don’ t regain the frustration they had on Saturday to ensure the right stake takes place and the machines work. This was reported by by PMNEWS.
” I want to assure the good people of Anambra that the election is not over, there is still a victory for us, the PPD.
” The more than 248, 000 votes tomorrow in Ihiala and elsewhere are enough to change the situation.
” There was no low turnout on Saturday. What we had were technology challenges that prevented many people from choosing.
” While we congratulate INEC on their efforts to use technology to improve the electoral process, we would like to acknowledge the imperfection that has marred the exercise. It was a great experiment that we didn’t deserve, ” he said.
Ozigbo holds ” denominational” and ” monetary policy” responsible for the current outcome of the process.
He urged Anambra voters to make them less prominent in order to get the most out of the candidates.
