PDP Sweeps Enugu LGA Polls as APC Kicks

From  Ignatius Okpara, Enugu

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has swept the local government election conducted on Saturday in the entire 17 council areas in Enugu State and 258 political wards, amid protest by the All progressive congress, APC, which described the polls as a sham.

Chairman of Enugu State Independent Electoral Commission, ENSIEC, Mike Ajogwu (SAN) declared the controversial resultS on Sunday at the commission’s  office in Enugu.

The ENSIEC boss disclosed that elections did not take place in two wards in Udi Council Area: Obioma and Eke. Ajogwu, adding that  it did not affect the result of the chairmanship election conducted in the council.

Ajogwu,  gave the total number of registered voters in the two ward as ‎7892, saying it would not be of any effect considering the margin between the PDP candidate and the APC winners. While the APC polled 4,731, the PDP won with 54,331.

The chairman denied  reports of violence during the election, stressing that  the election remained free, fair and credible.

“I monitored the election; anybody that was part of the process will find out that it was very free, fair and very credible.

“All the result sheets were genuine; claims of fake result sheets were false; nobody can contemplate of anything fake here.”

But the All Progressives Congress, APC, has vowed to challenge the outcome of the exercise in court

Dr. Ben Nwoye, the state chairman of APC, while speaking with newsmen in Enugu shortly after the election alleged that there was no election across the State.

Nwoye who added that there was widespread violence, queried: “even if the ENSIEC does not want to do election, does it worth the blood of anybody?”

He alleged that the electoral body disenfranchised the people of the State by making sure that no result sheet was brought to polling units, after which already prepared results were announced.

According to Nwoye, “in this circumstance, we have no other option than to go to court; we won’t call for cancellation because there was no election in the first place; you cannot cancel what does not exist; so we are going ahead to challenge the outcome of the charade they did today in court.
