Anambra Election: Don’t waste your time, you have no mandate to claim in court, Umeh tells Andy Uba

Former national chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, Senator Victor Umeh, has said his party is ready to confront the All Progressives Congress, governorship candidate, Senator Andy Uba, in court.

Uba, who came third in the just concluded November 6, 2021, Anambra governorship election, vowed to challenge the outcome of the election result that produced Professor Chukwuma Soludo, as the Anambra governor-elect.

Uba said he was robbed of his mandate and that he would do everything possible to reclaim his mandate in court.

However, speaking on the development over the weekend at his country home in Aguluzigbo, Anocha Local Government Area of the state, Umeh said the party’s lawyers are fully prepared for the challenge, any day, any time.

According to the former senator representing Anambra Senatorial District at National Assembly Abuja, the APC candidate has no mandate to reclaim in court because he did not win the election even in his own ward.

He said, “Is he going to court to challenge the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that announced the winner or security agencies deployed to protect lives of Ndi-anambra? 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 for?

“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.

“We are used to such cases. I have been in politics for more than 20 years now, so APGA is not afraid of going to court with Andy Uba.

“Nothing will make Anambra people vote for a party that has nothing to offer. Nigeria’s Judiciary is not an undertaker.

“Please tell him, we are waiting for him in the court. Anambra is not Imo State, where a candidate who came fourth in election suddenly became a governor.”
