The Anambra central people’s coalition, has asked the National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh to keep quiet concerning the conduct of National Assembly elections in the state on March 28, 2015.

The group led by the senatorial candidate of African Democratic Congress (ADC) during the election, Chief Anayo Nweke, said he contested the election adding that it was free, fair and credible despite the loss.


Umeh, had filed his petition at the Anambra State elections petitions tribunal in Awka, last week Saturday, citing irregularities and heavy fraud as some of the things that marred the exercise.

After the contest, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Uche Ekwunife winner of the election.

Ekwunife, who currently represents Anaocha, Njikoka and Dunukofia constituency was issued with certificate of return by INEC last week Friday.

However, the group warned Umeh to desist from claiming victory on the pages of newspapers, adding that he should wait for the court’s decision.

According to Nweke, “some of us who contested the election have already emulated President Goodluck Jonathan, Jimi Agbaje in Lagos and others by conceding defeat after the election to the person declared winner by INEC.

“We advise Umeh for the interest of Anambra central to join hands with Hon. Uche Ekwunife, who performed creditably well for her people at the House of Representatives to lift the zone.

“Only God gives powers, apart from that it was the work Ekwunife did for her constituents that gave her that position. Therefore, we are not ready to question God’s decision.”
