Senator Chris Nwabueze Ngige has headed to the law court in a bid to prove that the November 16 Anambra State governorship elections were flawed and should be cancelled. Ngige was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the governorship elections recently conducted in Anambra State.

He has applied for an order of the court through his lawyer, Emeka Ngige (SAN) to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to make electoral materials used for the polls available, so he could file his petition to the Election Petitions Tribunal.

So far, no date has been fixed for hearing.

Ngige came third with 95,953 votes in the race won by All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, candidate, Chief Willie Obiano who polled 180,178 votes. The second position went to Tony Nwoye of the PDP who had 97,700 votes
