ABIA NORTH: INEC DID NOT DECLARE ELECTION INCONCLUSIVE, KALU REMAINS WINNER
Following a fake report being circulated on social media that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the national assembly election in Abia North Senatorial district inconclusive, the Orji Kalu Media office has blasted Mr. Mao Ohuabunwa of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for misleading the general public.
INEC returning officer for Abia North Senatorial zone, Dr. Charles Anumudu had on Sunday, February 24, 2019 in the presence of all other party agents and the media at Ohafia Girls Secondary School (OGS), Amaekpu Ohafia, Ohafia LGA of Abia state declared former governor of Abia state, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the senatorial election.
Kalu polled 31, 208 votes beating Ohuabunwa , who scored 20, 801 votes and Chief DAvid Onuoha-Bourdex of All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA) 11,410 votes.
Upon declaration of the results by the designated returning officer, we expect all contestants to accept the results in good faith or seek redress in the court of law.
We are by statement advising the general public to disregard the malicious and fake news being circulated by the PDP candidate and his cohorts.
While expressing our gratitude to the people of Abia North for their unflinching support for Kalu and the APC, we urge members of our party to remain calm and steadfast.
