APGA goes to Tribunal over Anambra elections

The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Nigeria, Friday submitted its petitions to the Election Tribunals over the Anambra State elections, reports ITRealms.

This, ITRealms gathered was in line with the electoral laws  for immediate review before the deadline as allowed by Nigerian electoral laws. 

ITRealms recalls that in Anambra State, the officials of the party alongside the aggrieved candidates from the three senatorial zones and nine aggrieved Federal constituencies in Anambra State, handed in their petition to the party headquarters, which was forwarded and submitted to the Election Tribunal at Awka.

 National Publicity Secretary of APGA, Okwukwe Ibiam, told ITRealms that in Abia State for instance, the party's 3 senatorial candidates have submitted their petitions and await the tribunals' invitation, even as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) cancelled the Abia Central senatorial results

He also said that APGA candidates from Imo, Zamfara and Nassarawa States, have eqally asked for outright rejection of the national and state legislative polls in their various states.

"There was elation by the crowd at INEC headquarters, Awka, as facts continue to emerge that the announced National Assembly results were simply written and handed to the electoral officers to call," part of the press statement made available to ITRealms read.
