Eleven of the 14 governorship aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra State have said that the June 26 governorship primary in the state did not hold.

George Moghalu, the spokesperson for the aspirants, made the position of the group known in a press conference on Saturday in Awka.

Mr Moghalu said that in all the 326 electoral wards of the state, people came out to vote, but that none of the APC team saddled with the responsibility to conduct the primary and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials were seen.

Mr Moghalu, the managing director of National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) and one of the aspirants, said anybody who claimed that there was primary is fraudulent and did not wish APC well in the November 6 election.

Two other aspirants, Paul Orajiaka and Edozie Madu, corroborated the position of Mr Moghalu and warned that the era when one man would come up with fake figure to claim victory was over.

The aspirants, however, appealed to the party leadership to come up with a fresh date for the Anambra primary to ensure that the party beat the deadline in the Electoral Act.

Other aspirants at the event were Johnbosco Onunkwo, Ben Etiaba, Amobi Nwaokafor, Chidozie Nwankwo, Geoffo Onyjegbu, Azuka Okwuosa, among others.

Earlier on Saturday, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige had called for the postponement of the governorship primary.

Mr Ngige said there was no sign of the primary taking place in the state.
