Obi stays with Akunyili at tribunal

PDP accuses APGA of fresh plot

ANAMBRA State Governor Peter Obi stormed the tribunal with all his officers apparently to buoy support for Akunyili in the stuffy courtroom.

While the governor was inside the tribunal for more than five hours, all the engines of the four Jeeps in his convoy kept running.

Akunyili declined comments on her testimony and presentation at the tribunal, which lasted for only a few minutes.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state has alleged plots by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to substitute the results of some disputed wards in the Anambra South Senatorial poll.

Dr. Andy Uba of the PDP was declared winner of the election, but his election was annulled and a fresh one ordered by the tribunal.

The Chief Judge of the Federation Justice, Dahiru Musdapher, constituted a new panel led by justice Denton West to retry the case following complaints by Uba that he was unjustly treated by the tribunal.

In Akwa yesterday, the state PDP Chairman Chief Benji Udeozor said “party has uncovered plans by APGA to falsify certain results in some disputed wards in the Anambra South Senatorial zone.

“We have evidence to the effect that they intend to present these fake results which they and their agents have concocted with the intension of presenting it at the election tribunal. This is obviously a sign of desperation on their part, but we are resolute to ensure that nobody tampers with the authentic results,” he said.
