Ngige Reject Anambra Result Alleges Over voting
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.
