The minister of labour and employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has raised alarm over plots to hijack the registration/revalidation exercise of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra state, urging the plotters to have a rethink.
Ngige raised the alarm shortly after revalidating his APC membership at polling unit 010, Nkwo Ide Square, Alor Ward 1 in the Idemili South local government area of the state. He called on the people of the area to come out en masse and register with the party, reiterating that the November governorship poll in the state would be a walkover for the party.
He said “If you struggle for materials and you register fictitious names, ghost names, it will not work. This is because number you don’t know whether our primaries will be direct or indirect.
“If it is indirect, that one is gone. Even if it is direct primaries, we are going to use our register and do Option A4; you stand in line behind whichever candidate and we count.
“So, how then do you benefit from it? It is at somebody’s own peril. So, nobody is actually doing that. They have now seen reasons and we are on the same page.
“We are working hard to fortify the booths, populate the booths with real persons; persons that are alive, persons that speak and breathe so that on the election day, those people will come out and do a national election based on the same booths.
“We’re using the same INEC booths’ delineation to do this registration. So, that is the masterpiece.”
He added, “The November 6 governorship poll in the state will be a walkover for the APC because everything has been put in place to realise the objective.
“We are going to win this election. We have started. We are laying the blocks. We did the foundation. We are putting the blocks on. By November, you’ll see the house, the roofing and everything that a complete house has been built. We’ll go into the election with seen and unseen forces. We are the seen forces. The unseen one is God.”
