Sunny-Neville Uchendu, an All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) chieftain, says many APC people are spoiling President Muhammadu Buhari’s name before and during the Anambra governorship election, which produced APGA candidate Charles Soludo as the winner.
“What is more remarkable is that some people were dropping the name of Mr President as their joker in the Anambra election,” stated Mr Uchendu. “But for Soludo to have won the election shows that many people with sinister motives have been spoiling the good name of our president without him getting involved in their negative activities.”
Mr Uchendu made the statement on Wednesday while reacting to the declaration of Mr Soludo as the winner of the 2021 governorship election in Anambra by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Mr Uchendu, the deputy director, Diaspora Outreach, and Prof. Chukwuma Soludo 2021 Campaign Organisation commended INEC and security agencies for their roles in making the exercise peaceful.
He said though the introduction of the Bimodal Verification Accreditation System (BVAS) device in the election had some issues, he maintained that the commission should improve on some flaws noticed.
“The new BVAS device is good because it made it difficult and disappointed people banking on rigging. But I believe that INEC should make sure that the ad hoc workers operating the devices should be properly trained as they exhibited poor handling of the device,” he noted.
Mr Uchendu, who congratulated the APGA candidate for his landslide victory, advised the governor-elect to prioritise construction, agriculture, security, and commerce, amongst others during his administration.
He also called on Anambra people, both at home and in the diaspora, to rally round Mr Soludo to enable him to sustain the good works of Governor Willie Obiano.
