The All Progressives Congress, APC, has distanced itself from the purported primary election of the party in Anambra state describing it as “figments of fertile imagination”
The governor of Ogun state, Dapo Abiodun had declared Senator Andy Uba, MFR, the winner of the primary election with 230, 201 votes even as all other aspirants rejected the announcement.
But the state’s party Publicity Secretary, Okelo Madukaife, said the number being brandished has nothing to do with Anambra APC and disassociated itself from the outcome of the election.
Madukaife, disclosed this in a statement, saying that there was no primary election in the state and they are hoping that the national leadership of the party will do the right thing.
The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to a set of figures circulating on the internet without signature or attribution and purported to be Anambra APC primaries results.
“The figures do not owe to Anambra State APC Primaries which did not hold and for which we look forward to the Caretaker National Executive of our great party to choose a new date within INEC timetable.
“The leader of our great party in Anambra State and Minister of Labour & Employment, Sen (Dr.) Chris Nwabueze Ngige has proposed Tuesday, June 29, 2021, for the primary to hold, and we recommend that it should be considered.
“In the time being, the figures should be discarded and discountenanced as they are figments of fertile imagination, with the potential of being fatal.”
