READ HIS FULL STATEMENT :
Ohuhu my clan,my land,my identity for life.I wholeheartedly wish to thank you all for coming out to vote for me in the state house of assembly election.
They said we were not popular but against all odds their vote buying,multiple voting and in some cases like Umuda Isingwu outright shooting to disrupt the counting of the votes when they saw i was leading overwhelmingly in Umuda Isingwu Units 7,8 and 9, Inec still stated we won in three out of the constituency five wards namely Afugiri,Isingwu and Nkwoachara and even in the ward of the incumbent member out of the eleven units that make up his Nkwoegwu ward which unit 002 was cancelled due to over voting we still won five and he won five,now where lies their popularity i ask?
Isingwu people upon the their claim of having singularly done the Umuda road Isingwu people still rejected them.Now to the crux of the matter i wish to humbly inform my good Ohuhu people to please go to God the final arbiter in prayer as we have taken our case to election petition tribunal praying God to reverse this great injustice done against our people and knowing we serve a God of justice our petition to HIM will be granted.
I have been induated by a lot people telling me about how a certain man and his son has vowed that as long as they are alive i would never be a member of the state house and my humble reply is “who is he that would speak when the Lord has not spoken and who’s report shall we believe”.To God as usual be all the glory.
