Anambra gov: Ubah heads for court, lambasts Wike, others

The Chairman of Capital Oil , Mr . Ifeanyi Ubah , has said only the court will determine the authentic candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State .
Ubah , at a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday , insisted that Mr . Oseloka Obaze did not emerge through a transparent , free and fair primary .
He alleged that the primary was a fraudulent exercise , adding that he would not allow himself to be rubbished by the outcome of the exercise .
Ubah described the outcome of the PDP primary as a sham .
He added , “ I will be approaching the court to determine the legality or otherwise of the PDP primary in the state .
“ The election is fraudulent and it is illegal . However, we will allow the court to determine whether the party has the right to trample on its own constitution and the Electoral Act.
“ The list of delegates used for the election was different from the list of delegates given to the Independent National Electoral Commission .
“ The commission supervised delegates ’ election and the party submitted the names of the delegates . But my party manufactured new names and list a day to the primary . ”
Ubah said as a loyal member of the PDP and one who stood by the party through thick and thin, his love for the party could not be questioned .
He described the Anambra governorship primary as “ a show of shame as it was marred by obvious irregularities , leaving little to be desired and more questions than answers from the relevant authorities and party officials . ”
He accused the Governor of Rivers State , Mr . Nyesom Wike , a former governor of Anambra State , Mr . Peter Obi , and some unnamed members of the party committees of robbing well - meaning people of Anambra of their earnest yearning for a potential governor with a robust pedigree and a time - tested proof of love for the people .
Ubah added , “ In the quest for justice , I submit myself to fight this illegality and injustice for my sake as well as that of anyone who aspires to contest on the party ’ s platform and I hope that justice will prevail in the end . ”
Efforts made to get the reaction of the PDP through its spokesman , Dayo Adeyeye , were not successful as calls to his telephone did not connect .
