The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the just concluded governorship election in Anambra State, Mr. Oseloka Obaze, on Monday wrote off the election results published by the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC), saying t did not reflect realities of the votes cast by the electorate on November 18.
Obaze, who made the statement at a press conference in Awka, described the feat of the incumbent Governor's winning all the 21 local governments in the state as a political aberration in the context of the state's politics.
He alleged that there was over-voting and inconsistencies between the counted ballots and card reader data, which he described as exceedingly worrisome.
His words: “The election results as reported shows that nothing matters to the Anambra electorate.
“The people have spoken. They have taken a cursory long term view of what they wish for Anambra State.
“I am returning back to my private life and letting go of the election. I don’t intend to contest the election results. But if my party decides on that, I will have no choice but to adhere.”
The retired diplomat however congratulated Governor Willie Obiano on his victory.
