I'll Never Take My Victory For Granted - Soludo Speaks On Receiving Certificate Of Return

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has presented a certificate of return to Professor Charles Soludo as the Governor-elect of Anambra State.

Meanwhile, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just-concluded Anambra governorship election, Senator Andy Uba, has rejected the outcome of the exercise.

Uba rejected the governorship election results in a statement released on Thursday by the spokesperson of his Campaign Organization, Ambassador Jerry Ugokwe.

The APC candidate accused INEC, security operatives and the Anambra state government of engaging in widespread electoral fraud and manipulation which saw him lose the poll.

Uba stated that the election was characterized by widespread irregularities, intimidation and voter suppression in order to allow APGA and Soludo to win the exercise.
