APGA Candidate Faults Guber Poll, Describes It As Assault On Democracy

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Enugu, Frank Nweke, has described the March 18 governorship election in the state as an assault on democracy.

In a post on his verified Twitter handle on Friday, the ex-Minister of Information, said the election was characterised by “a multitude of infringements on our democratic process, an assault on our desires, and our hope for our great state.”

Recalling his promise to offer his congratulations and best wishes to whoever emerged in a fair and transparent manner during his campaigns, Nweke said the election was far from fair and certainly not transparent.

He accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of deploying violence, thuggery, intimidation, use of divisive sentiments, and the weaponization of poverty against the people in the course of the campaign and the elections to hold on to power against the will of the people.

The APGA candidate also accused the PDP and the Labour Party of vote buying “with as little as N500 or packets of noodles in some places.”

He alleged that the PDP also secured the assistance of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) agents to rig the election, offering cash or issuing threats as the situation demanded.

Nweke condemned INEC for going ahead to declare the contested Nkanu East result without any explanation of how they came about with the numbers.
