A socio-political Igbo group under the aegis of Ndigbo Unity Forum has warned the national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Umeh to desist from further attack on the senator-elect for Anambra central senatorial zone, Mrs Uche Ekwunife as that could be termed contempt of court.
The national president of the group, Chief Augustine Chukwudum urged Umeh to stop further attack on the senator-elect on the ground that since he had approached the court to challenge the outcome of the March 28 National Assembly election in Anambra state, he can no longer be a judge in his own case.
“It is high time Chief Victor Umeh and APGA stopped crying like babies since they have approached the tribunal and declared their intention to seek redress in the court of competent jurisdiction, he should stop further attack on the senator-elect and allow the court to determine his fate since he cannot be a judge in his own case.”
The group said that since the April 11 State House of Assembly election was conducted with APGA winning 26 seats, “nobody has raised such accusation of massive rigging but only for the party to raise alarm of purported massive rigging in the two seats PDP won.
“We have been seeing the governor and party supporters throwing party and even making celebration over their so called victory at the House of Assembly election of April 11and nobody challenged them even in the face of obvious massive rigging but today they are raising alarm, crying like babies because PDP won just two seats which is the strongholds of the former governor of the state, Mr. Peter Obi and the senator-elect for the central senatorial zone, Mrs.Uche Ekwunife. They should be more matured in their politics as Anambra state is already politically sound,” he said.
