Throughout the APC main election in Anambra in June, Gov Abiodun had introduced that “Uba polled 230,201 of the 348,490 total votes cast, to defeat 13 other aspirants.”

Although the outcome was rejected by different aspirants and leaders of the APC within the state, the nationwide management of the get together fielded Uba as its candidate, counting on the outcome declared by the Ogun State helmsman.

It could be recalled that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen Chris Ngige, on the time, stated there was no main election held in the complete Anambra.

However Gov Abiodun, who was the Chairman of the APC main election committee within the state, insisted that the election was clear.

Nonetheless, because the governorship election got here to an finish on Tuesday, Uba’s 230,201 votes grew to become a mirage as he ended up polling simply 43,285 votes.

One other commentator, John, said that “Whereas a number of members of APC in Anambra are prepared to swear earlier than something together with amadioha, that there have been no gubernatorial primaries in any ward in that state, these saddled with conducting direct primaries in that strategic Igbo State insisted Andy Uba received the first with over 230k votes; not even the protest by the Minister of Labour, Dr Chris Ngige, that there was no main in his personal ward or LG nor the collective petition by different gubernatorial aspirants may dissuade them.

“They insisted over 348k APC members participated within the train and Uba received it. Nicely, that they had their method. And through the gubernatorial elections held and outcomes indicated that APC has carried out very woefully.

“However the query agitating the minds of a number of patriotic APC members throughout Nigeria is the place are these 348,000 members who purportedly voted in that direct primaries? A minimum of, these 230,000 members who voted Andy Uba through the primaries ought to vote for his or her man on the election day. The place are they?

“These are the questions APC leaders in Abuja who brushed apart the protest by Dr Ngige and different aggrieved guber aspirants ought to urgently present solutions for.

“My bible tells me, Righteousness exacts a nation, but sin is a reproach (a drawback or stain).”

“Because the APC races in direction of 2023 when some doomsday prophets have predicted APC will collapse, these working the get together must conduct a soul-searching and by no means wave apart grievance of its members.

“Going by the mass defection that hit APGA and the reported poor performance of the departing governor, Willy Obiano, Anambra was there for APC to win. But once again, APC blew it.”

Femi Oke, an APC member in Ogun State, opined that “As an APC man, I can say categorically that Andy Uba was the worst candidate on the controversy, there isn’t any contradiction.

“APC ought to cease fielding PDP Political Prostitutes as their candidates and may guarantee free, truthful, & clear direct primaries are carried out to make sure our greatest attainable candidates emerge.

“We are able to even have televised APC candidate debates earlier than the primaries so one of the best candidates will showcase their talents. Why has APC and PDP refused to undertake on-line membership, with a celebration membership app and membership subscriptions?

“It’s because the stinkingly corrupt, inept, moneybag politicians at the head of these parties want to continue to manipulate and deceive Nigerians ahead of 2023.”
