The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has declared that it will contest the election result after complaining of malfunctioning of several card readers used for Saturday’s governorship election in Anambra by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Victor Oye, the National Chairman of APGA, who stated this on Saturday said although the card readers captured his fingerprint at his polling unit at Amawbia in Awka South Local Government Area, reports from most of the party’s agents across the state showed that the machines malfunctioned in many areas.
”INEC had given the impression that they have tested and confirmed more than 6,000 card readers for November18 election.
“But what happened on the functionality of the card readers was a far cry from what INEC told the public,’’ he said.
On the turnout of voters, Oye expressed satisfaction with the turnout, presence and conduct of security operatives during the election.
The APGA National Chairman said that the party was hopeful of emerging victorious at the end of the election.
He also noted that anything short of outright victory for the party, APGA would contest the result at the tribunal.
