Don't issue certificate of return to Andy Ubah, he stole my mandate, Ndukwe cautions INEC



The former Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and Senatorial candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the Anambra South in Saturday’s election, Dr. Ernest Ndukwe, has advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), not to recognize or issue certificate of return to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Andy Ubah, reports ITRealms.


Ndukwe who was speaking to newsmen at Oraifite in Ekwusigo local government area of Anambra State, said that from the results recorded on Form EC8A1 in all the polling units within the Senatorial zone he contested, evidently showed that he won strikingly, advising Mr. Andy Uba who has been parading himself as winner to surrender.


“The people of Anambra South senatorial zone voted massively for me in all the seven local government areas, but it is so disheartening that some people decided that the wish of the people should be thwarted,” he lamented.

Ndukwe said that it’s a known fact that the result of every election comes from the polling unit, decrying that the card reader could not work optimally coupled with the resumption of voting late.

“Unfortunately, because the card readers did not work, voting started late end stretched into the night. And because there was no light, there was no collation at the ward level and everything had to be taken to the local government collation center,

He alleged that it was at this point the security agents joined some members of PDP in manipulating the election in addition to intimidating the INEC ad hoc staff.

“Form EC8A is there to prove it because you cannot get a different thing in the field and then announce a different thing as   the result. It is not done. I think in the course of time, my people will have the leader they voted for.

“No proper collation was done anywhere in Anambra South Senatorial zone. There was wide spread of falsification of results and inducement. Corpers were influenced and even when the Returning Officer refused to announce the doctored results, the PDP stalwarts had to force another INEC officer to announce the falsified results,” he claimed.

Ndukwe also said his mandate must be return to him, while he commended voters in the zone for the support given to him.

“I, therefore, call on INEC not to allow this charade to stand by not issuing certificate of return to PDP because there were irregularities of the highest order,” Ndukwe insisted..
