Senator Uche Chukwumerije representing Abia North, PDP, has said that the controversy trailing the November 16th governorship election was a signal of looming danger in the country.
Senator Chukwumerije stated this while speaking on the confirmation of Professor Akinola Muritala Salau as National Commissioner in the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
He said: “INEC requires somebody like Professor Salau. I would continue to say that unfortunately the recent experience in Anambra State.
“The heated controversies that followed the governorship election of 16th November are the kind of things we must not allow to repeat themselves in 2015 elections if we want to save this country.”
“People like this Professor are those who are going to help us to succeed. What I want to emphasize is simply, I have heard many people saying with due respect to the two sides of the divide that any allegations made in Anambra were true or false.
“I know as a matter of Nigeria history, victors always say Oh that was impeccable election, losers always say, Oh we cry foul but the issue is there is no smoke without fire. I see a danger signal.”
