Press Release

 

Anambra 2013 Elections-Moving Forward without Rancor

Washington, DC November 19, 2013:

 

 

The Nigerian-American Leadership Council, NALC  has carefully reviewed its independent analysis of the just concluded Anambra Governorship elections.  As a non-partisan organization, we do not join issues with candidates or base our analysis on speculative innuendoes.  However, here’s our impression of this important exercise.

 

To The People of Anambra

We hereby congratulate and commend the people of Anambra State for pulling of this feat: an “election without violence.”  The singular act of going to the polls and casting their votes without violent confrontations, speaks volumes about the citizens new unspoken determination, to perform their civic duty without intimidation, as a citizen’s life is not less valuable than a politicians life.  Other Nigerian States should take notice and emulate this new political maturity.  Anambra has thus redeemed their moniker as the “Light of The Nation.”

 

The Candidates

 

The four main Candidates in this race; William Obiano, Christopher Ngige, Ifeanyi Ubah, and Anthony Nwoye, all respectively did their best, to pull out their supporters for this historic election.  However, we have analyzed the official results of this race, from every possible angle; and we hereby opine without fear of favor, that APGA’s Obiano has carried the day.  We do not see how any of the other candidates can overcome Mr. Obiano’s lead in this race.  Our informed opinion is buttressed by our observers on the ground, as well as official results from the undisputed votes already cast.  The possibility of any other candidates picking up extra votes in the coming supplementary elections is not likely to change APGA’s commanding lead in this election.

 

We therefore call on all the other candidates to extend a hand of fellowship to Mr. Obiano; as it is done in other climes.  No one candidate is bigger than all of Anambra State, regardless of how towering they perceive their political pedigree to be.  Nigeria practices a democracy, and the people have spoken; “Vox Populi, Vox Dei-The Voice of The People is The Voice of God.”

 

 

On Nigeria’s INEC

 

To say that we are surprised and disappointed with Nigeria’s INEC, for not pulling off this election without hitches or drama, is an understatement.  As a Council peopled by professionals in public service, law, the US Military, and others; we see many different strategic variables that INEC could have deployed to create contingency plans for what went wrong, in some areas in this election.  However, we expect that the culprit(s) that caused the problem(s) in the affected areas will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  A full prosecution will protect the integrity of all Nigeria’s future elections.
