Senator representing Anambra Central senatorial district and All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate in last Saturday’s Senatorial election, Senator Victor Umeh, has called for the cancellation of Anambra Central Senatorial election, saying that the process was not free, fair, credible and transparent.
Senator Umeh made the call during a press briefing at his country home, Aguluzoigbo.
Senator Umeh highlighted INEC’s inability to announce Idemili North result as evidence, maintaining that INEC lost control of the exercise.
He added that the election which recorded so many malpractices, violence, malfunctioning of some INEC sensitive materials such as the card reader cannot be accepted as it goes against the rules stipulated by INEC to guide the process.
He advised INEC to be bold enough to stand against such injustice by cancelling the polling units across the entire zone which their result did not reconcile as the number of accredited voters must tally with number of votes cast.
He, however, asked all his supporters across the zone to remain calm as they wait for the resolution by INEC.
