ThisDay reports that the results collated yesterday at the Anambra State headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) showed that the candidate of the Peoples Democratic party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has won in four local government areas so far announced.
But the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige has raised objection to the results, particularly that of Njikoka Local Government Area.
The LGAs include; Anaocha,Dunukofia, Anambra West and Njikoka. Atiku was clearly leading with a wide margin in the four LGAs.
But Ngige who is the APC agent in the election said the results announced by the collation officer, Prof. Edmund Egbo, did not tally with what was collated in the polling units and wards of the LGA.
Ngige who addressed the state collation officer, Prof Francis Otunta said, “With due respect, we cannot accept this result, because it does not tally with what was collated in the field.
Main News earlier lernt, Maurizio Sarri has been left in a fragile situation at Chelsea after Kepa Arrizabalaga’s act of defiance in their League Cup final defeat against Manchester City, according to Jose Mourinho.
The club’s £70 million ($91m) record-breaking signing refused to be substituted for Willy Caballero in extra-time, despite pulling up twice with a physical issue towards the end of the contest.
Mourinho offered his take on the Kepa incident in the wake of the match on DAZN , revealing he has never experienced anything like it as a manager himself.
The former Manchester United and Chelsea coach also admitted he now fears for Sarri’s position at Stamford Bridge, as he stated: “Luckily I never had to live through anything like this.
“I think on the one hand the goalkeeper wants to show his personality, his confidence and wants to say ‘I’m here, I want to go to penalties and save them, and I am here with the confidence that I will go and do it’. And this is what I like.
“But then I don’t really like that he [Kepa] leaves the manager, the coaches and everyone else in a very fragile situation, also including one of his own team-mates who was ready to enter the pitch.
“Eventually we saw how he [Caballero] was thrown into a mess that he wasn’t really part of.
“It saddens me because it’s a really complicated situation.”
