APC Guber candidate in the just concluded election held in Imo state,Senator Hope Uzodinma has rejected the results of the poll.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) decleared the result of that exercise held on March 9. According to INEC, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Emeka Ihedioha, polled 273,404 votes to defeat the Action Alliance (AA) candidate, Uche Nwosu, who got 190,360 votes, while Uzodimma scored 96,458 votes.
But speaking at a press conference in Owerri, Uzodinma alleged that the election was massively rigged against him and his party, rejecting what INEC announced.
According to him,there was mass rigging,and the returning officers were indigene of their place of assignment which meant the result could have been tampered with.
“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.
