Written by thereachfm on March 13, 2019
Candidate of Action Alliance in the governorship election held in Imo State on Saturday, Uche Nwosu, says he has rejected its outcome.
Nwosu, who briefed newsmen in Owerri yesterday while arguing that the Independent National Electoral Commission was wrong to have declared Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party the winner of the election said he would be heading to the tribunal to challenge the outcome of the election.
He further contended that Ihedioha did not meet up with the constitutional requirements which stipulates that, apart from scoring the majority of votes cast, a candidate must at least garner 25 percent votes in two-thirds of the entire state.
The governorship candidate also alleged that the use of card readers was abused during the election while hinting that Resident Electoral Commissioner, Francis Ezeonu, may have taken sides in the polls in favour of the governor-elect.
