The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded Anambra State governorship election, Oseloka Obaze, has rejected the result of the poll.
Obaze, in a chat with newsmen, described the outcome of the election as pre-determined.
According to him, the results of the local governments did not reflect the voting pattern.
Obaze said that the electoral commission had a case to answer in explaining how it arrived at the decision bordering on over-voting in some areas when accreditation and voting were done simultaneously.
It would be recalled that the incumbent Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, who is also the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance coasted home with a landslide victory in Saturday’s Anambra governorship election.
Obiano, who won in all the 21 local government areas of the state, floored his arch rivals, Tony Nwoye of the All Progressives Congress (Anambra East) and Oseloka Obaze of the Peoples Democratic Party (Ogbaru) in their hometowns.
The Independent National Electoral Commission through the Returning Officer, Prof. Zanna Akpago, had declared Obiano the winner of the election at the commission’s office in Awka on Sunday.
Obiano polled 234,071 votes to beat Nwoye (APC), who came a distant second with 98,752 votes, while the PDP governorship candidate (Obaze), who lost in Ogbaru, his local government area to Obiano, came third with 70,293 votes.
