APGAThe National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has called on the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, to set as a priority after his swearing in, the probe of the general elections in the South East.

Mr Victor Umeh, who made the appeal, also called for a comprehensive electoral reform.


Several candidates, who lost in the election, complained and pointed accusing fingers against opposing political parties.

Several complaints trailed the House of Assembly re-run election of last Saturday, April 18, in Anambra State, in which candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party won three out of the four seats that were contested for.

The inconsistencies in the April 11 House of Assembly election in Anambra state led to the cancellation of 32 wards and 500 polling units in four state constituencies of Anocha 1 and 2, Aguata, and Ekwusigo.

Mr Umeh also maintained that the leadership of INEC should expunge all unwholesome characters in the commission, disallow the use of adhoc staff, whose names are submitted by candidates as well as ensure that those who commit electoral fraud are not announced winners, thereby subjecting the actual winner to the rigours of reclaiming their mandate through the court.
