APGA Refuses To Validate Anambra South Result
Following the failure of the favoured aspirant, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu to secure the Anambra South senatorial district ticket, the All Progressives Grand Alliance [APGA] leadership has refused to validate the result.
ElombahNews, on Wednesday, reported that Mrs. Ojukwu lost the seat to Mr. Nicholas Ukachukwu, popularly known as Ikuku Oma.
The report further stated that the delegates decided to vote Ikuku Oma over the callous treatment meted out on Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah ahead of APGA primaries.
APGA statutory delegates were very angry with what Governor Willie Obiano did to Ifeanyi Ubah and the hijack of APGA by Aguleri indigenes and handed a protest vote to Ikuku Oma.
The delegates practically abandoned Ekwulobia Township Stadium, venue of the primary, and relocate to the home of Dr. Ubah in Nnewi in solidarity.
In appreciation to their solidarity, Ubah presented 119 motorcycles to 119 APGA ward secretaries in the 7 local governments in Anambra south senatorial zone.
In an earlier report, APGA party chieftains and member scampered for safety when heavily armed gunmen struck the venue of the primary shooting sporadically.
The event eventually managed to hold which saw Ikuku Oma defeat Obiano’s choice candidate.
