INEC SHOULD NOT ALLOW DESPERATE POLITICIANS DRAG HER ESTEEMED IMPARTIAL NEUTRAL CREDIBLE AND UNPREJUDICED ELECTORAL UMPIRE TO THE MUD.
Nigerians and APGA members trust and believe in the integrity and credibility of INEC as an unbiased umpire that will uphold and apply the provisions of the Nigerian constitution and that of the electoral act with sincerity. But it is unfortunate that some desperate politicians move around the all parts of the country gambling court orders from every available court , and even the ones that may not have jurisdiction just to embarrass INEC , Ndi Anambra and Nigerians.
In the current matter it’s only intended to cause confusion for APGA faithful’s and to create misunderstanding in political atmosphere despite the existing insecurity ravaging the country, just because someone feels it must be him or no other for the office of the governor of Anambra State, . This is an act of desperation which is not healthy for Anambra State because APGA is a peaceful party and has been moving the State to an enviable position throughout the country.
How could someone go to Jigawa to obtain a court order for Anambra election, what is wrong with Anambra judiciary if actually has a genuine claim or means well for ndi Anambra, this leaves much to be answered. Though the court order or judgement will be vacated effortlessly with so many laid down precedents. I don’t want to blame INEC totally for taking such step in announcing who they did on the 16th July because it’s court order or judgement but my worry is why did they not announce the name of Soludo which was submitted earlier on the 2nd day of July and according to the provision of the electoral act, the name of the candidate so submitted was supposed to be announced within 7days. But INEC did not announce the name of Soludo but kept waiting till 16 July.
What was INEC waiting for? It appears to have deliberately waited to get this court order .
By that singular act, INEC appears culpable. It is laughable that the same INEC commissioner who announced on Channels TV that their records has only Sir Victor Ike Oye as the only recognized national Chairman of APGA and that Soludo’s name has been enlisted, went around and began to contradict his earlier depositions, he appears to speaking from two sides of his mouth and I am convinced that he didn’t do proper consultations before that outrageous outbursts on the 16th July.
The important thing is that the court order or judgement will be thrown out effortlessly because there is no legal bearing for the claim so made.
The said Jude Okeke is not a member of APGA and therefore does not have locus standi to produce any gubernatorial candidate. My question is CAN A VULTURE GIVE BIRTH TO AN EAGLE ? all these will definitely end in a terrible a fiasco.
I therefore urge all APGA faithfuls and Ndi Anambra in general to ignore all these their television shows and false propaganda and keep on preparing for the gubernatorial election knowing that your APGA candidate (Soludo) will run for the gubernatorial election of November 6 and will definitely win all the wards in the 21 local governments in Anambra State.
Their distraction’s will not work. God has already programed the successor of Dr Willie Obiano in the person of Prof. Charles Soludo to move Anambra State further to an enviable level.
God bless APGA!.
God bless Ndi Anambra!!
God bless Nigeria!!!
