The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) Obinna Uzor has reassured his supporters that he was still in the race in the ongoing governorship election in Anambra state.
Uzoh stated this shortly after casting his vote in at Umunnamehi community school 3, PU024 ward1.
He alleged huge disinfranchisement of many electorate who wanted to vote, insisting he would wait until the final results were declared.
“I’m very much in the race. Just like in a football match, noting is over until it’s over. You can see certain Local Government Areas where a particular party won with less than 2000 votes,” he said.
Describing Ihiala as peaceful, the guber hopeful prayed the next governor of the state would reach out to stakeholders in order to ensure peace, prosperity and development in the state.
He added, “Ihala has been a peaceful community with a neighboring town of Iseke in Imo. I understand the flash point is not in Ihiala where people easily get scared.
“I’ve been here for sometimes and people have been going about their businesses. We pray for peace and stability because my people need peace to make progress.
“Security operatives have done well but we don’t need the entire security in Nigeria to conduct election. We pray a good leader emerges who will be able to reach out to stakeholders so we can ensure peace, prosperity and development in the state.”
