Awka — PEOPLE’S Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain in Anambra State, Chief Chris Uba, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, not to declare any candidate of the party winner in the state and National Assembly election.

The reason he adduced for this was the fact that there were still pending cases involving all PDP candidates in Anambra State at the Supreme and Federal High Courts.

According to Uba, INEC will be erring in law, if any of the PDP candidates was declared winner without the determination of the pending cases.

Vanguard recalls that Uba’s faction of PDP   had gone to the Supreme Court, praying for an injunction to restrain INEC from issuing certificate of return to any candidate of PDP for the 2015 National Assembly election in Anambra State, pending the determination of the suit fixed for hearing on June 9, 2015.

Furthermore, Uba said the removal of names of PDP candidates on the ballot paper by INEC was illegal, adding that nobody should be issued certificate of return in Anambra PDP.

Uba said: “For now PDP has no candidate in the election. People voted for the party and not candidates.”
