Delta State Peoples Democratic (PDP) acting spokesman, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has affirmed that the PDP Governor of Akwa -Ibom State, Emmanuel Udom will win the governorship re-run election in the 18 local councils of the state even if it is conducted 50 times.
Reacting to the pronouncement of Akwa-Ibom state governorship election tribunal which nullified election in 18 local government areas of the state and called for conduct of a re-run election, Onuesoke described that the development is a play by the opposition to take over control of the state.
According to him, “PDP will win because it is on record that APC does not have structures in Akwa Ibom state. Beside, past PDP governors and the present one have developed the states in all ramification that no normal Akwa-Ibom State indigenes will cast their votes for another party beside PDP.’’
He regretted however, that the conduct of re-run election will involve spending scarce financial resources at a time when the government financial resources is low, coupled with other consequences like killing and destruction of property that usually trail conduct of election in Nigeria.
“Elections were held in the north, west and southern parts and no one is challenging election in other part of Nigeria like is being done in oil producing states. Are you telling us that all the state in the western part that APC won are free and fair:? What about the northern part? Are you telling me that they are clean as it is? “ Onuesoke said.
