The 45 communities that make up Old Aguata Union, OAU, under the aegies of OAU traders in Anambra state on Sunday vowed to frustrate Sen. Andy Uba’s suit at the Election Petition Tribunal against Prof. Chukwuma Soludo that emerged winner in the just concluded Governorship election.
Controller General of the union, comrade Peter Okala disclosed this at a summit in Nkpor, Idemili North local Government Area of the State.
He said Nkpor summit was designed by the union cacaus and kindreds of Senator Andy Uba, to take stock of the election that saw the emergence of their own son and brother.
He said, “We thank Nigerians, INEC, security operatives and IPOB who on ensuring that a man of the people emerged, suspended its sit-at-home order it earlier made adding that, “it gave room for the electorate to freely vote for the candidates of their choice which produced Prof. Charles Soludo as the winner.
” We therefore warn that failure to heed to our advice that Soludo should be allowed to perform by Senator Andy Uba who we learnt has gone or is about to go to the Election Petition Tribunal to challenge his victory, we will have no other option left than to use all legal means within our disposal to stop or frustrate him.
“Anambra people are wiser now and any attempt to truncate the victory will be resisted , we therefore advise Uba to sheat his sword and allow the wish and aspiration of the people to take possession in the interest of peace and tranquility.”
Okala who was flanked by his secretary, Peter Okeke and Patron, Chief Cyprian Umeh, reiterated the resolve of the union to mobilise all traders in the state to storm the court in protest if he fails to withdraw his suit against Soludo.
” We thank those candidates who not minding that they were defeated, rushed and commended Soludo for his land slide victory” stating that, ” they showed spirit of sportsmanship,” he added.
