The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has threatened to sue the Independent National Electoral Commission over the defeat of President Muhammadu Buhari in some parts of Anambra State in the Saturday’s poll.
Ngige, who is the agent of Buhari in the election, faulted the results INEC declared in the Idemili area of state.
While saying the final results declared by the electoral body did not tally with the results collated in polling units and wards in the areas, Ngige called for the withdrawal of the results.
He said if the results were not withdrawn, he would challenge the declaration in court.
He said the results declared by INEC was a total breach of the Electoral Act.
“I’m going to challenge these results in court if INEC does not handle this complaints well by ordering a fresh poll in the areas,” the minister said.
Ngige added that card readers failed to work in the area during the elections.
“I am calling for the outright cancellation of the presidential election in the Idemili North and Idemili South Local Government Areas or I will take up the matter in court,” he said.
