The governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, was in Aso Rock on Monday where he declared to state house correspondents that there was no rigging in the state governorship election which held on November 16.
According to him, even if the governorship election is conducted 10 times, his party, the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) will emerge victorious each time.
He said: “Let me tell you, in the election in Anambra State, I can go to anywhere as a Christian and tell you there was no rigging in the election. Those who wanted to rig were prevented from rigging and they are crying.
“Go to the people of Anambra State, if you repeat that election 10 times, they will never win. What are they even talking about cancellation? The regulation, the rules or the law says that you have to win at least 25 per cent in two-third of the local governments. Only APGA can boast of that, we won in 18 local governments.
“The nearest, which is the Peoples Democratic Party, won in nine local governments, the All Progressive Congress won seven. And I can tell you that even those results they are shouting about their own are even more doubtful. Everything for APGA is real.
“I cannot be part of rigging, I don’t have money to pay for people. You know those who spent money and I am not one of them.”
