Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State on Monday declared that there was no form of rigging in the November 16 governorship election in the state which his party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), is in pole position to win.
Gov. Obi, who made this know at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, while speaking with State House correspondents, maintained that even if the elections were to be repeated 10 times over, his anointed candidate, Willie Obiano of APGA, will carry the day.
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”.
