APC Will Not Be Part Of Anambra LG Poll – Ngige

Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the just concluded Anambra gubernatorial election, Senator Chris Ngige, has said that his party will not be part of the forthcoming January 11 local government election in the state.

Senator Chris Ngige stated this while addressing a press conference in Akwa, after a crucial meeting with stakeholders and APC aspirants on the said election.

He said, it became imperative for the party to take a position after reviewing the last gubernatorial election.

He however commended the people of Anambra State for their steadfastness and patience, claiming that “few days to the election, voters’ register has not been given to parties and the last voters register used by Nigeria Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in conducting the gubernatorial election has not been reviewed, hence APC is insisting on an authentic voters register.”

The lawmaker however, flayed INEC over what he described as “glaring signs of the non- readiness of INEC, hence doubt their ability to conduct and ensure a free, fair and credible election.”

“APC is completely excluded from all elective positions in the state, against the will of the people.”

The former governor, who represents Anambra Central Constituency, also lambasted the acting chairman of Anambra State Independent Electoral Commission, ANSIEC, Mr Sylvester Okonkwo, for requesting political parties to submit the list of candidates and their forms to the Commission “when issues leading to a free, fair and credible election in the state are yet to be addressed.”
