Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by Nobody: 10:32am On Feb 08, 2010
Mixed reactions have trailed the declarationof Mr. Peter Obi of the All Progressives
Grand Alliance as the winner of Saturday ’sgovernorship election in Anambra State.
The candidate of the AC, Dr. Chris Ngige, and his Labour Party counterpart, Dr. Andy Uba,
have rejected the results of the election.Speaking on Sunday after INEC declared Obi
the winner of the election, the Director of Planning, Research and Strategy, Ngige
Campaign Organisation, Mr. Kingsley Ezewenyi, said Ngige was rejecting the
outcome of the exercise because of the widespread inconsistencies in the voter
register, which made it impossible for a lot of its supporters to exercise their civic
rights. He said, “We are rejecting the outcome of the election in totality because a lot of
people came out with their permanent voter cards, but were not allowed to vote because
their names were not in the register. I am speaking for Ngige on this issue and that is
the position. “When we got this voter register, we had to download and print.
We did this and  distributed it to all the polling units in the state irrespective of political affiliations for them to see what is there.‘We discovered at that time that 80 per cent of Anambrarians did not have their names
in the register; we called the attention of INEC to this problem and they promised that  they would address it. ” Meanwhile, Uba has asked INEC to cancel the election.Uba said the election was flawed in many ways and therefore could not stand. In a letter on Sunday to the Anambra State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Uba listed seven areas in which the election failed to meet constitutional requirements. In the letter, which was made available to one of our correspondents in Awka, the former presidential aide said INEC failed to provide adequate electoral materials and ballot papers for the election. He said materials arrived late at the polling
units and there was a general complaint by voters that they could not find their names
on the register. He alleged that there was no voting at all in many areas in the state, saying that snatching and stuffing of ballot boxes characterised the poll. Uba said he was particularly pained by the
alleged unjustified cancellation of the election in Uga Ward I in Aguata Local Government Area, which is his own home ward. Most significantly, Uba alleged that the February 6 election was unconstitutional and unlawful as it failed to meet the requirement of the law. “It is pertinent that your commission is absolutely incompetent to conduct the 6th February, 2010 governorship election in Anambra State on the account of the fact of absence of the requisite quorum constitutionally stipulated for the execution of the affairs of the commission with respect to the conduct an election. Being improperly constituted, your commission cannot and is bereft of any lawful authority to conduct the said governorship election in Anambra State. “Accordingly I am constrained to ask you to cancel the said governorship election in Anambra State, same being illegal and
fraught with aforementioned legal disabilities, ” he said.

Here we go again.

Please tell me, did the above irregularities affect only Uba and Ngige?

I guess it was a system problem which affected all the parties.
I guess that the election was generally fair, non-violent, no lives lost and generally reflect the wishes of the Anambra people.

Kudos to Anambra State for showing the way this time around.

Now its tribunal one way. But cone 2 think of it,is it not d uba that rigged himself in in 2007 that is nw complaining? Is it not ngige that stole obi's mandate in 2003 that is nw complaining of rigging?
These folks shud stop making noise lyk they r political rookies n go n prepare money 4 d tribunal judges which is round 2, appeal court judges round 3 and supreme court judges,d final round.

Everybody wanna be a governor down there.
The margin of defeat is too big to contest

Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by demla: 12:30pm On Feb 08, 2010
when the sitting governor is in charge what do u call such power? this is just a style of rigging where and when selected name are in the register and those names, are names of those they trusted. so IF UR NAME IS NOT IN THE REGISTER, U CAN NOT VOTE.     abi wetin i talk?.  the omission of names in the INEC register is not a mistake but delibrate.

Only 19% of registered voters were allowed to vote because of false voters Register.
The remaining 81% were completely disenfrachised including Ekwueme,Ngige and Uba's Family and over 1 Million other families.
It is definitely below expectation and i Hope it is Not The New Way INEC will Be rigging People in come 2011.
its à Bad Omen for 2011.
Ngige definitly have à tenable reason to go to Tribunal but He will Loose.Because there is nö Proof that what happened affected only him.it affected everybody across Board.

Crap! The voters register was not used eventually. INEC later issued instructions that everyone and anyöne who came with a valid permanent voters registration card should be allowed to cast his/her vote and they DID. Uba and Ngige (whom I wanted to win) should stop crying WOLF when there isn't one. The ELECTION WAS GENERALLY FREE AND FAIR. Kudos to Anambra for doing what Ekiti and other states couldn't do.

Thank you bro.
Apparently,clear-headedness and factual judgement is what you possess.
Uba and Ngige can go to court for all we care.This has to be one of the most credible elections after June 12.

INEC told them to use voters ID at what Time?At 4pm when People were Tired of waiting and Left forhome?
Iwu was à monumental failure and he should Be sacked for Not being able to update the voters Register.

Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by beknown(m): 2:03pm On Feb 08, 2010
INEC has failed to maintain a good electoral register. Just imagine the number of eligible voters who did not appear in the electoral roll.

This is the evidence of what we will get in 2011 election.

INEC is bad news.

What is wrong with this Nigeria sef? So INEC can not conduct only one state gubernitorial election without stories?
If the bolded allegation is true then the election should be cancelled.
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by woro: 2:18pm On Feb 08, 2010
let them accept the results in gud fate for ngige whom ibeleive so much in him he should not giveup but by contesting in the next dispensation gov obi has convinced the people wit his present administration which has scored him a gud mark for u ngige your legacy still remains in our memory all da best inlife
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by theviper1: 2:25pm On Feb 08, 2010
woooh, must Uba go to court 4 everything, why doesnt he use the cash he pays to lawyers to build a factory (no matter how small) in anambra state? what did Ngige do at the state house when he was there? the problem we have from my mom¨s state (my queen is from that state) is that many of the pple helps in derailing the progress of that state. if pple should stay away from greed and wickedness in anambra state,it will be a model state. example of what am saying was when a road was to be constructed in Nnewi,pple went and insured their cash crops , bananas,pears,mangos and stuff. the construction company felt that it doenst have enough money to settle insurance claims on cash crops and that road was never tarred (ekwusigo road).the system failure did not affect only 2 pple and before u know it now,the Soludos and the rest will be going to court and another 4 years will be wasted.
i wish to appeal to well-meaning anambra indigiens to talk sense into these dudes and to chart a new way forward  for that dear state. the state doesnt have airport today cos luxurious bus owners sabotaged the effort when Imo state was building her own.a state that can boast of world reknowned figures is crawling like a snail.i hereby ask my maternal pple of anambra to stand up and show the world that YES,THEY CAN.
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by chiozor: 3:07pm On Feb 08, 2010
both can hit head at a stone, PETER OBI IS THE GOVERNOR AND THE ELECTION IS FREE AND FAIR grin
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by Kay17: 3:07pm On Feb 08, 2010
as long as the results do not favour them, there will always be controversies and allegation of electoral malpractice.
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by alldone(m): 3:44pm On Feb 08, 2010
why cant people just accept defeat? they will always complain mainwhile if they are the one they will do worse things.
well i don't see any sense in challenging this ellection because they will only extend the guys tenure. they should plan for another time.
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by yeswecan(m): 4:05pm On Feb 08, 2010
same old story . . .
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by adconline(m): 4:21pm On Feb 08, 2010
let them go to court and test their cases. However, INEC is still a failure for not conducting credible elections. It's a reflection of what's coming up in next year's elections. I think Obi should not be held accountable cos some of his voters were also disenfranchised.
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by Emperoh(m): 4:57pm On Feb 08, 2010
Some Lawyers/Law firm are about to get richer. . . . if i were a lawyer, i should have sent in a proposal to Andy Uba

Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by chigo4u: 5:49pm On Feb 08, 2010

Irrespectve of the fraud. Now I want somebody here to place a bet with me on upturning the election. Take this, either the election is upturned or ngige will be declared winner.

Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by archangel1(m): 6:04pm On Feb 08, 2010
hello babes, God is in control. Obi's victory is dedicated to good governance and his endearing ANIDS Program.he is the first political leader in Nigeria who takes public funds as sacred.
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by metalgong5(m): 7:10pm On Feb 08, 2010
Andy Uba has accepted defeat and congratulated Obi. He had promised to work with him and not to challenge Obi's victory at tribunal.
Anambra politicians are now showing some maturity. I hope that Ngige and other Nigerians politicians would emulate their spirit of sportsmanship.

Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by oge4real(f): 7:51pm On Feb 08, 2010
^^Good. I suggest Ngige should follow suit so that the state can move ahead.
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by tayoast(m): 10:06pm On Feb 08, 2010
Y do politicians resort 2 lies wen things don't go their way?

Imagine Ngige saying 80% of Anambrarians were unable 2 vote.*
Re: Ngige, Uba Reject Governorship Results by OKEYCHIVIV(m): 10:27pm On Feb 08, 2010
Why should anybody listen to characters called Ngige and Uba.
Ngige for all I care should have gone to jail with Chris for
Obi's mandate and should NEVER contest for public office again
foe life-anyway,Ogwugwu-akpu (Okija shrine) is waiting for him.

The number of people that voted effected all of them and the only man
amongst the three that has some credibility-Soludo-has congratulated
Mr Peter Obi.Let them go to court.anambra must move forward whether they loke it or not-amen.
