According to the former Anambra state governor, the act was a calculated ploy by the electoral body to deliberately deny his people their civic rights, and opportunity of voting the candidate of their choice.
Meanwhile, at Nsugbe, Anambra east council area and country home of peoples Democratic party candidate, Tony Nwoye, voters including aged people were seen struggling to cast their votes so as to beat the 4pm dead line by INEC.
