Tension In Anambra As Ifeanyi Ubah Gets Shocker, See What Tinubu Did After Buhari’s Victory

Another big drama has played out following the National Assembly elections in Anambra State as the electoral umpire reportedly released the results.
According to The Punch, the Returning Officer for   Saturday’s Anambra South senatorial election, Prof Meshach Umenweke, has written the Independent National Electoral Commission recanting his earlier declaration of the candidate of the  Young Progressives Party, Ifeanyi Ubah,  as the winner of the poll.
In the  letter, he claimed  the  election was inconclusive. He  also said he was forced  to  declare businessman Ubah  the winner to save his life.
Umenweke  is of the Department of Public and Private Law, Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, Anambra State.
The  letter dated February 25   and addressed to the Anambra Resident Electoral Commissioner   seen  by our correspondent read in part, “That there were skirmishes within the compound of the Nnewi North Local Government  Area (headquarters) where the results were being collated between the police and some thugs who sought to gain entrance to the area of collation. The situation was volatile, intense and charged.
“The police had to spray tear gas to disperse the thugs and supporters,  most of who waited nearby. There was inadequate  security in the collation arena. There was the imminent danger to my person given the situation at hand to delve into the merits of the petition at the material time.”

The don added, “Sequel to the above, I hereby declare the result of the elections into Anambra South Senatorial seat which I pronounced yesterday (Monday) inconclusive.”

In another development, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has reacted to the outcome of the 2019 presidential election.

Daily Post reports that President Muhammadu Buhari was on Tuesday night, declared winner of the election, defeating the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
