Anambra Poll: INEC must conduct election in all areas not covered, says Ozigbo
– Optimistic of victory
By Ifeizu Joe
The Peoples Democratic Party PDP candidate in the Anambra State 2021 governorship election, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo Monday said he is still optimistic of winning the Governorship seat of the state.
INEC had announced the election result of 20 out of 21 local government areas in the state, with the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA leading, and followed by Ozigbo. Election will hold in Ihiala Tuesday, to conclude the process.
The PDP candidate who addressed journalists on the ongoing election expressed optimism that PDP will still emerge victorious at the end, stating that Ihiala was not the only place where elections failed to hold.
“We have the statistics, and know the areas where INEC could not conduct election on Saturday, and we call on them to ensure they do so.”
According to him, with over 248,000 votes at stake in Ihiala and other places where election did not take place, the party still has hope of producing the next governor.
He appealed to the people of Ihiala and other areas to come out en mass to vote for PDP as better alternative in the state governance.
He regretted the impact of vote buying which he described as a major issue in the nation political development.
He added, “After Ihiala, others place where elections did not take place will follow, and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC must obey the electoral law and conduct election where it did not hold.
“The party has all areas where election did not hold and will be happy if election are held there.”
On what his next move was, Ozigbo said the party was only more concerned with the supplementary election for now, and will decide on its next line of action after the completion.
