Anambra State Governor has thanked the people of the state for voting massively for the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in last Saturday’s House of Assembly election in the state.
Delivering the thank you message in a Special Broadcast at his Aguleri residence in Anambra East Local Government Area (LGA), Governor Willie Obiano said the gesture had massively renewed, re- invigorated and re-validated the sacred mandate the people had given him and his Deputy, Dr Nkem Okeke, to build a better state as well as a nudge to them to shape the future of Anambra state.
He said the victory of APGA in the House of Assembly election had exposed the large scale fraud perpetrated by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the presidential and National Assembly elections of March 28.
Governor Obiano said the PDP also made same attempt during last Saturday’s election, but was nipped in the bud, leading to the cancellation of the election in five state constituencies.
He however, urged the people of the state in the affected areas to be vigilant and ensure that their constitutional rights of deciding who represents them is not tampered with, while pledging maximum security towards a peaceful, free, fair, and credible election on Saturday, April 18.
INEC has rescheduled the elections in Ekwusigo, Anaocha and Aguata LGAs.
