Nnewi South Constituency 2 APGA Primary was the Best, Free and Fair – Hon. Chieloka

By Izunna Okafor

As it is said that facts clear the air while evidence settles the doubt, the primary election of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) recently conducted in the Nnewi South Constituency 2 of Anambra State has been described as the most credible, peaceful, free and fair.

This was contained in a statement issued by Hon. Chieloka Henry Okoye who happens to be the  rightful winner of the apparently 'best' primary election, defeating her two opponents -- Hon. Ify Onyebumuo and the incumbent speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Hon. Rita Maduagwu.

Reacting to the purported inconsequential bunkums being auctioned around by some tattle mongers who allege that the free and fair election has been canceled as a result of alleged doctored Ad-hoc Delegate List; Hon.

Chieloka, who is also a former Chairman of the Nnewi South Local Government simply described the rumour as a 'Beer Palour Gossip', even as he called on his supporters and the public to disregard such claims.

He went further to narrate in detail, how the election was done and dusted, starting from escorting the electoral materials and APGA officials (by Hon. Rita's P.A.) from Awka down to the Local Government secretariat (Ukpor) where the election was finally held, the votes counted, and the winner announced, all in the presence of the three aspirants, electoral officers, party officials, DSS officers, men of the Nigerian Police Force, delegates, agents of the three aspirants, and the Returning Officer, without any forms of secrecy.

He thus wondered why some people would just tap their anus and flatulate some unjustifiable tarradiddles, claiming that the a free and fair primary election adjudged to be the best, has been canceled or is inconclusive.

This, he simply tagged "Beer Parlour Gossip"

He said: "Having polled the highest vote, the Returning Officer announced that I won the election, hence returned me as the candidate of the party. I was congratulated by Hon. Ify (who was one of the aspirants).

"The delegate list was not published anywhere, the result was duly signed and submitted, and INEC officials witnessed the entire process. The result is available.
The media published the same result.
"There was no protest from any aspirant, before, during or after the election, by words or actions.

"There was however, wild jubilation across the length and breath of the entire Nnewi South. In 2014, I had contested for the same election, with Hon.Rita Maduagwu and Hon. Ikenna Mbazulike Amaechi. Hon. Rita emerged winner of that Election, and myself and Hon. Ikenna Congratulated her.

"We must learn to eschew bitterness in politics, as a winner must emerge from every election

"The leadership of our great party (APGA) did not notify me, or any other aspirant of the alleged cancellation of the free and fair election, and no other election has been held either"

"Elections are NOT cancelled on Social Media" he concluded.

Hon. Chieloka finally called on his supporters to disregard the puerile gossip of the alleged election cancelation; showered panegyrics on the leadership of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) for the quintessential maturity they have shown so far in handling/conducting the affairs of the party, even as he went further to pledge his faithfulness and consummate support to the party.
