Soludo: 35 buses left Imo for Anambra on rigging mission

Soludo: 35 buses left Imo for Anambra on rigging mission

The Charles Chukwuma Soludo Campaign has  raised the alarm  of an attempt to rig the ongoing Anambra governorship election.

The organization alleged that it had received credible intelligence that about 35 buses left Imo State for Anambra State with election materials for the purposes of rigging.

Further, the buses were allegedly accompanied by men in Nigerian Army combat dress.

The mission, according to an insider who doesn’t want his name disclosed because of the sensitive nature of his job, is to substitute the election materials used in today’s Anambra State gubernatorial elections with those from Imo, and thus create the impression that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is winning the vote.

The whole enterprise, according to sources, is at the behest of the controversial Imo State Governor; Senator Hope Uzodimma, chairman of the Andy Uba Gubernatorial Campaign Council.

Equally important, the Soludo campaign has urged relevant bodies like the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC); as well as the security agencies, election monitors, the media, civil society organizations and the international community;  to watch out for what has appropriately been called the Hope Uzodimma invasion team in Anambra State.

Meanwhile, Soludo, candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has taken an early lead in the ongoing poll.

Specifically, Soludo has emerged as the frontrunner in preliminary results announced in six local government areas announced so far.

1st News reports that the local government areas include Onitsha South, Awka South, Anaocha, Anambra East, Orumba South and Njikoka. Earlier, Soludo had won his polling unit and ward in Aguata LGA  by a wide margin; although the final results from the local government is yet to be announced by the electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
