Anambra drama: women protest conduct of election

More than 100 Anambra women yesterday stormed INEC office in Akwa to register their grievances with the just concluded election.
They were barred from entering the electoral commission’s office by security personnel.
No official of the commission attended to them.
One of the protesters called for the cancelation of the election.
“It is our right to choose who to govern us. More than 70 per cent in some local governments did not vote,” the protester said.
She alleged that the election was not free and fair.
There have been reports of omission of voters’ names from the register, an irregularity that led to the rescheduling of election in 65 wards in Idemili North and South Local Government Areas of the State, extending voting by one day.
The All Progressives Alliance and the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidates asked their supporters to shun the rescheduled election due to the irregularities experienced in the Saturday election.
