APC calls on Chief Annie Okonkwo to quickly recover from his malaria and prepare for elections, because one cannot become a senator without going through elections in a democracy.
We call on Chief Annie Okonkwo to quickly recover from his malaria, before it is confused with Lassa fever and prepare for elections, because he cannot become a senator without going through elections in a democracy where the law is clear and unambiguous.
Section 141 of the 2010 Electoral Act, as amended is very clear that ‘no candidate can be declared a winner of an election unless he or she has participated in every stage of the election’.
Even then Annie Okonkwo was not a candidate at the time the court of final jurisdiction annulled the election held in March 28, 2015 on December 7, 2015, but is now a candidate by the implied provision of the Supreme Court judgment of January 29, 2016.
Therefore, we are not surprised that Annie Okonkwo rather than prepare for election is involved in a cricket celebration , ordering swearing in clothes running into hundreds of millions of Naira, and making an acceptance speech that builds something on nothing.
We however are in a position to know that it is Okonkwo’s stock in trade and one-one of the reasons he could not fit into APC.
We request Annie to donate the money he is paying for uniforms to be worn by those attending his imagined swearing in in the Red Chambers to individuals in need owing to poverty and young men requiring support in their educational pursuit around his native Ojoto and environs, who have suffered neglect over the years.
We urge all progressive minded men and women to prepare to vote in Barr Sharon Ikeazor the best woman for the job in a party which caucus, the largest in the National Assembly will offer progress to Anambra Central, Anambra State and South East Nigeria.
For: All Progressives Congress (APC)
State Publicity Secretary
