Please permit us to bring the following to the attention of the leaders and members of our Party, All Progressives Congress APC
- That we overwhelmingly won the primaries conducted on the 5th of October 2018 for the Federal House of Representatives Ughelli/Udu Constituency
- That after counting votes of Ughelli North and Ughelli South, it was clear that we have won the election. Thereafter losers became unruly for several hours before the Police came with re-enforcement and Udu votes were counted.
- We thank all delegates for their confidence in us and voting us and assure them that we will defend the mandate we have received with everything we have got to the letter.
- For two days now, delegates have been inundated with frivolous text messages by losers inviting them for a so-called re-run. We state unequivocally that we shall vehemently resist any attempt or attempted attempt to cancel a free and fair election which we have won.
- We are aware of the amassing of thugs and funds to snatch our hard-earned and well deserved victory by the losers through the so-called re-run. Perhaps some persons think that they have a monopoly of violence or they mistake our calm disposition for cowardice. A trail will convince them otherwise.
- We wonder how on earth those who lost their Local Government of origin expect to win the local government of origin of our principal. Even if the numbers they claim to be over-voting is deducted from our votes in that LGA we still win convincingly. Even if the entire LGA is cancelled we still have won.
- We call on losers to be good sportsmen and join us to win the general elections for our party.
