The National Chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Chief Ralphs Okey Nwosu, has advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), not to allow the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), All Progressive Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to participate in the forthcoming Anambra governorship election.He alleged that the three parties were behind the political, security and socio-economic challenges Ndi-Anambra and the country at large are currently facing.Nwosu, gave the advice while speaking to journalists at his residence in Awka, Anambra State capital, on Tuesday, on the state of the Nation and to felicitate with the Muslims on this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration.According to him, it would be a great injustice to Nigeria’s electoral process, especially, Anambra voters, if the ruling APGA, APC, and the PDP, were allowed to participate in the election.
He noted that the aforementioned political parties displayed gross indiscipline and leadership deficit in their processes of conducting primary elections of their different political parties; which, he argued made them unfit, in the eyes of the law, to participate in the exercise.“Everybody in Anambra and Nigeria is a witness to what happened in Anambra as far as the primaries of APGA, APC and PDP are concerned. These three parties have shown gross indiscipline and leadership deficits, which manifested in the ways they conducted their party primaries ahead of the election”, Nwosu stated.According to him, ‘going by records, these three political parties should not participate in the process. What happened in the APC primary was an ambush.
The party opted for a direct primary; but at the end of the day, a candidate emerged without anything like primary taking place anywhere. This is a violation of the APC Constitution and the Electoral Act.“For APGA, up till today, the party still has three factions; producing 3 candidates through three different processes. Apart from going contrary to APGA Constitution, APGA also went against the Electoral Act in the conduct of their primaries. So, INEC was right when it said that there was no clear congress that produced delegates for the APGA primary.“For PDP, the story is the same. Every day, the party continues to change techniques of doing their primary.
Today, they will say Adhoc delegate; tomorrow, super delegates; the next, nominal delegates. As far as we’re concerned, the only party that followed due process in selecting its candidate for the Anambra guber is the ADC,” he said.He disclosed that ADC in the Anambra election, through the willingness of the people, would throw off the third force and emerged the winner of the election.He also stated that ADC is the third-largest political party in Nigeria with 5 House of Representative Members at National Assembly, Abuja.According to him, if by November 6, Anambra people favoured ADC and its candidate, Chief Akachukwu Nwankpo, by electing the ADC, the state would enjoy the best leadership since its creation.The Anambra State governorship election is billed for November 6, 2021.YOU SHOULD NOT MISS THESE HEADLINES FROM NIGERIAN TRIBUNENo Evidence Arab League Sent Warning Message To FG On Biafra MovementCLAIM: A Twitter user claims that the Arab League of Nations sent a warning message to the Nigerian government on the Biafra movement.Anambra 2021: ADC urges INEC to disqualify APGA, APC, PDPAnambra 2021: ADC urges INEC to disqualify APGA, APC, PDP
