The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA in last Saturday’s governorship election in Enugu State, Frank Nweke has rejected the declaration of Peter Mbah of the People’s Democratic Party PDP, as the winner of the polls.

Nweke, who came third in the election, behind Chijioke Edeoga of the Labor Party LP, described the election as an assault on democracy, saying that he would explore all legal means to ensure a legitimate government is put in place in the state.

The former Minister of information alleged that both the PDP and LP engaged in vote-buying during the election, insisting that he would not congratulate the winner of the election because it wasn’t fair and certainly, not transparent.

In a swift reaction, the PDP Enugu State Campaign Council dismissed Nweke statements insisting that the people of Enugu State rose above clan, religious denomination, and party divides to elect Mbah, as the best-prepared for the job.

The party, however, enjoined Nweke as well as other candidates to accept the olive branch extended to them and be part of the new Enugu State that Mbah is rearing to build.
