The Abia State chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC has rejected the outcome of the December 18 local government elections in the state.

The party rejected the declaration of candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party winners of the election.

Speaking to reporters at the state APC Secretariat, in Umuahia, on Sunday, the Caretaker Committee chairman, Donatus Nwankpa, said, “The ABSIEC not only displayed incompetence, they also exhibited lack of preparedness.

“In most places, in most cases, there were no voting materials, no result sheets, the manpower and the capacity to even conduct the election because there were no preparations to conduct election into the 292 ABSIEC wards and the 17 LGAs which manifested itself yesterday” he said.

“Any result not announced at the poll unit is hereby rejected by APC. Until the right thing is done APC will seek redress in court.”

However, the chairman of the Abia State Independent Electoral Commission, Prof. Mpka Agu Mkpa who announced the results, commended all parties as well as security agencies for ensuring a smooth exercise.

He declared the PDP as winner of all the 17 local government chairmanship seats just as he announced that the Labour Party won six councillorship seats, out of the ten in Ikwuano Local Government Area. He said that the PDP cleared all councillorship seats in the remaining LGAs of the state.
