Anambra Election: PDP Challenges INEC Over Plan To Divert Electoral Materials To Imo

(Last Updated On: 2021-09-13)


The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, has been challenged by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over reports in the public space that the commission plans to start conducting the Anambra State governorship election from Imo State.”

PDP also asked the INEC chairman to speak further on an allegation, especially from Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano, that the commission is planning to recruit returning officers from Imo State, as well as plan to allow the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government of Imo State to write the original result sheet in the state.

The PDP described the alleged “compromises by INEC as vexatious, provocative, completely intolerable and a direct recipe for a serious crisis in Anambra State, the South-East region and by extension derail the nation’s democratic order.”

The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said it “firmly rejects the reported move by INEC to use its facility in Owerri, Imo State capital, for the storage of electoral materials for the election rather than in Anambra State.”
