The All Progressives Congress (APC) threatens to reject yesterday Anambra Governorship election results, if voting did not take place in all the local governments. A statement released by its interim National Publicity Secretary said it will reject results from its strongholds of Idemili-North, Idemili-South and Awka-South.
The party condemned the shortcomings in the voters’ register, which omitted the names of many voters and called for the immediate removal of the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Prof. Chukwuemeka Onukogu.
The statement read,
‘’Before the election, political parties were given a voter’s register that largely contained the names of most voters. However, about four days to the election, INEC said at a stakeholders’ forum that there were problems with the register, which would be rectified before the election.
When the supposedly-corrected registers were brought back, most of the authentic names in them have disappeared without explanation.”
