All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, alongside six other political parties yesterday called on Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to cancel re-run elections in four constituencies in Anambra State.
Director General of APGA Campaign Organisation, Senator Alphonsus Obi Igbeke who made this known at his country home said INEC should cancel the election based on petition from the party.
Senator Igbeke said SPO’s and PO’s were nowhere to be seen after INEC brought replacement result sheets for the election about 2pm when the initial result sheets got missing for hours at the various polling units.
He named the other political parties in alliance for the call for the cancellation of areas where result sheets got missing or PO’s and SPO’s disappeared to include NDP, KOWA, SDP as well as APC.
At Agulu Ward 3, located inside St John’s Catholic Church, Agulu, Dr Ejike Imoka (Mmili Agulu) described the process as peaceful, adding that he did his accreditation with the card reader but lamented the cancellation of the initial election they did which affected the re-run.
Meanwhile, Senator Andy Uba was chased away from his polling unit located within St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Uga, during yesterday’s rescheduled election for Aguata 1 State Constituency seat for Anambra state House Assembly by some thugs suspected to be working for one of the political parties in the election.
Had he not disappeared, the aggrieved youths led by Williams Umeh, would have lynched him as they laid all blames at his desk.
Williams Umeh and Nnaemeka Ezenyelimba as well as Mazi Okechukwu Nwokoye were livid on the roles alllegedly played by Senator Andy Uba, insisting on free and fair election, as they refused the conduct of any election without the availability of ballot papers.
Chairman of APC, Eze Aghaeri, Uga Ward 1, told newsmen that the re-run election had again been characterized with the same malpractices that led to the cancellation of the earlier poll. He accused desperate members of one of the political parties of trying to rig the election in favour of their candidate.
The re-run election was however held in four state constituencies. They included Aguata 1 , Anaocha 1 and 11 as well as Ekwusigo state constituencies.
Though minor violence was recorded in a polling unit in Nri, Anaocha 1 state constituency, the re-run election went on very peaceful in the affected polling units in Anaocha 11 and Ekwusigo.
The national Co-ordination, All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA Stakeholders, Chief Sylvester Nwobu-Alor, stated that the re-run election was peaceful in Anaocha because the state governor assumed full leadership of the APGA and has involved the party elders in taking decisions that seriously affected the party.
