Candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC for Abia Central Senatorial Zone in the just concluded National Assembly elections and Member representing Ikwuano/Umuahia North and South Federal Constituency Hon. Samuel Onuigbo, has rejected the outcome of the Feb. 25 National Assembly election.
His rejection of the result was over the omission of his party and name in the result sheet.
Onuigbo told newsmen in Umuahia that he rejected in its totality the figure of 7,997 votes allocated to him and his party by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Onuigbo queried why his name was missing on the result sheet, after INEC had uploaded it on its portal as APC Senatorial Candidate on Dec. 22, 2022, following his Court of Appeal victorv on Nov. 30. 2022.
The two-term legislator displayed before the newsmen, a photocopy of the result sheet for Senatorial election, which he obtained from INEC, as evidence for his claim adding that he was consulting with his attorneys on the appropriate response to the grave omission.
Onuigbo appealed to his supporters to remain peaceful and law abiding in the face of what he described as “the provoking situation”.
