Anambra Election: INEC Holds Closed Door Meeting with Obiano, Nwoye, Ngige, Ubah
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Wednesday in Abuja held a closed door meeting with the principal characters in the November 16 governorship election to discuss the fall out of the polls.
The meeting which kicked off early afternoon had in attendance, governorship candidates of the four major political parties in the elections, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah of the Labour Party (LP), Senator Chris Ngige of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Tony Nwoye of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Dr Willie Obiano of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), amongst others.
Also in attendance were the leaders of the relevant political parties and other stakeholders, apparently to fashion out a way forward and out of the imbroglio that has made the Nov 16 election inconclusive.
The meeting of the electoral umpire and the governorship candidate is to brainstorm on the way forward out of the logjam following repeated calls for the cancellation of the election.
A chieftain of the PDP , Chief Chike Nwanguma who confirmed the meeting to journalists in a telephone interview monitored in Awka yesterday said that it became necessary because of the confusing and opposing stance of the key players in the stalemated election.
He said he was worried about the multiplicity of views from top members of his party, who he accused of having turned their positions to stock market of sorts. Persons who have contributed little or nothing to the growth or fortunes of the party at whatever level.
He believed that a larger section of the state’s electorate were disenfranchised last Saturday because INEC and their computer data base bungled the voters register of the state.
Nwanguma wondered why Prof Attahiruh Jega muddled up the voters register and dumped it on the laps of the parties, giving room for the governorship election to be discredited beyond measure. He however urged the citizens of the state to maintain their level headed disposition always.
