Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded Anambra Governorship election, Valentine Ozigbo, has congratulated the winner and candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Chukwuma Soludo.
The PDP Candidate disclosed that he called Professor Chukwuma Soludo on phone and congratulated him after being declared winner of the Anambra State Governorship elections wished him well and as well prayed for his success.
Ozigbo, however, alleged that there were shortcomings at the election, emphasizing that the Independent National Electoral Commission presented poorly trained staff who could not operate the voting machines in many places.
“This election was fraught with a lot of shortcomings on the part of various government institutions,” Ozigbo said.
According to him, “failed woefully in providing logistical support for their staff and so elections started very late in many places and did not hold in many others.”
Soludo won with 112,229 votes beating Ozigbo, who polled 53,807 votes, and Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress who got 43,285 votes. Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young Progressive Party polled 21,261 votes came fourth, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
