A governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Anambra State governorship election, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah has rejected the outcome of the party’s primaries and resolved to head to court to seek redress.
Ubah, who faulted the whole process of the primary election, said that the delegates list used for the PDP primary election was different from the certified true copy of the delegates list he obtained from the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
He further stressed that the person who emerged as the PDP candidate for the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State, Mr. Oseloka Obaze, was in the first instance not qualified to contest the election as he was only granted a provisional waiver as at the time of the primary.
The PDP governorship primary for the Anambra State governorship election held on Monday, August 28.
Speaking with newsmen yesterday in Abuja, he pointed out that he had exhausted all the internal mechanisms available for conflict resolution without success, before his decision to head to court.
“The unlawful process that took place on the 28th of August, 2017 in the guise of primary election has not only jettisoned the appropriate electoral college, it has also jettisoned the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, the Electoral Act 2010, the Constitution of the PDP 2012 and the PDP Electoral Guidelines as amended.”
