Judiciary not undertaker – Sen Umeh



FORMER National Chairman, All Progressives Grand Alliance [APGA], Victor Umeh has said that APGA’s victory in the just concluded governorship election was because of  the love ndi Anambra have for the party and also that the party has laid a good structure by performing very well in the state, saying that nothing will make the people drop a party that has given them peace.

  Senator Umeh stated this during a celebration he organised for the people of Aguluzoigbo in his home.  According to him,” during the governorship election, I asked my people to vote for APGA, they voted for APGA and this ward came first  in Anaocha Local Government Area and in the whole state, this ward came 7th.

  Speaking on the claims by the candidate of the  All Progressives Congress [APC], Dr. Andy Uba that he will do everything possible to recover his stolen mandate, Umeh said, ”there is no mandate to recover. Anambra people did not give Andy any mandate. Election took place in 21 LGAs and he did not win any LGA, and came third by the declared result ”

  According to Senator Umeh, Andy is entitled to go to court if he is not satisfied but he must have good reasons. You don’t just go to court because the law allows you ”. Ndi Anambra are happy that the election turned out the way they wanted it. Is he going to court to complain against INEC or the security agencies that were neutral? I don’t see anything that went wrong during the election and I believe that the Nigerian Judiciary is no longer an undertaker and they have demonstrated it. So what he will get is the right reprimand by the judiciary”.

 Senator Umeh further stated that President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Prof. Charles Soludo for winning the election, and the other candidates have congratulated him too. Some people are saying that what happened in Imo State may happen in Anambra but I said it will never happen here. Election held in the 21 LGAs and the outcome was a clear reflection of what Anambra people wanted”.
