The All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in the just concluded Imo State guber poll, Senator Hope Uzodinma, has rejected the outcome of the election.
Senator Uzodinma, who made this known at a press conference in Owerri, the state capital stated that his reason for rejecting the outcome of the election is because the election was massively rigged against him and his party. He maintained that the result announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was unacceptable to him and the APC .
The APC guber candidate who came a distant fourth in the election said that he clearly won the election.
According to him, all machineries in the state were positioned to deliver a favourable result to the PDP candidate.
APC clearly won the election. The result as announced by INEC is unacceptable to me and the APC. The Retuning officer for Ezinihitte Mbaise is from Ezinhitte Mbaise, the Retuning officer for Aboh Mbaise is from Aboh Mbaise and the Returning officer for Ahiazu Mbaise is from Ahiazu Mbaise.”
He said “it was untrue that he had congratulated the governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha.”
