The inability of the People’s Democratic Party PDP candidate in the governorship election in Anambra state, Tony Nwoye, and business mogul, chief Arthur Eze to vote in the poll has continued to generate mixed reactions in the state.
African Examiner reports that the duo of Nwoye and his political God father and sponsor, chief Arthur Eze could not cast their votes on Saturday following omission of their names in the voters register of their respective political wards.
Chief Eze was shocked to the bone of his marrow when his name was missing at the voters register in his Dunukofia ward, Dunukofia council area of the state, a development that prevented the money bag from performing his civic responsibility.
It was a similar experience for the PDP candidate, Nwoye, as he could not cast his vote at his Abicor ward in Nsugbe, following the non-inclusion of his name in the voter register.
Speaking with our correspondent in Awka, a chieftain of PDP, chief Jonah Obi, accused INEC and the ruling All progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in the state of masterminding the name exclusion of the duo.
In his reaction, another PDP stalwart and Abuja based surveyor, who gave his name as Amaobi Okeke, said it was a ploy by the electoral body and governor Peter Obi to frustrate the PDP in the election
Meanwhile, result of the elections is still being awaited.
