The All Progressives Congress (APC) has demanded that fresh elections be held in four local government areas of Anambra State, where election either did not hold or massive malpractices were recorded in Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
In a statement in Lagos, yesterday, by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party also rejected
INEC’s decision to organize fresh elections in only 65 polling units on Sunday, saying that will not address the massive disenfranchisement
of its supporters.
It listed the affected four local government areas as Idemili North,Idemili South, Awka South and Ihiala.
”In Idemili North, which has the highest number of registered voters at 173,832, voting materials did not arrive as at 2pm, when voters ought to have cast their votes; In Idemili South, with registered 85,731 voters, several qualified voters were disenfranchised as their names
did not appear on the voters’register; In Awka South, with 118,312 registered voters, the names of APC supporters were expunged from the voters’register and in Ihiala, massive fraudulent practices were recorded at Uli Ward 1 polling unit and Umuchima polling unit 14.
”Aside from Ihiala Local Government Area, the three local councils above comprise 377, 875 of the total 1, 784, 536 registered voters,”
APC said, adding that the affected areas were home to its support
The party said nothing short of fresh elections in the three LGs and the cancellation of the results in the listed polling units in Ihiala
would be acceptable to it.
Further, the party strongly advises INEC not to declare any results relating to the Governorship Election until repeat elections are held
in these areas where these irregularities occurred, more so as most of the party’s supporters have been disenfranchised in these areas.
