#ImoDecides2023: LP, PDP Demand Cancellation Of Election

The Peoples Democratic Party and Labour Party have called for the cancellation of the Imo State governorship election held on Saturday.

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Samuel Anyanwu called for the cancellation of the election.

He described the performance of INEC and  security agents as disapointing and below par.

 He alleged that the security agents protected INEC staff as the APC members rewrote the results.

Anyanwu insisted that he and his party, the PDP, would not accept anything less than a total cancellation of the poll.

For LP, its deputy governorship candidate Tony Nwulu, alleged during a press conference on Saturday night that security agents provided cover for some persons to rig the election.

According to him, his party won with the real votes cast in the election, saying, “The position of our party and my principal, Senator Athan Achonu, who is the governorship candidate of the party  is that this sham called election be cancelled”.

“There was no election in Imo State on Saturday. What happened was the diversion of the electoral materials to the homes of people and the LGA council headquarters. In all this, the police, Army and the DSS provided security to the actors.

“They came with huge sums of money to the polling units for votes buying but the Imo people rejected them. They now resorted to snatching of electoral materials, diversion of the electoral materials to homes of individuals and to the LGA headquarters where they are currently rewriting the results.

“We have all the records. We are putting Nigerians on notice that there was no election in Imo State on Saturday”, he said.
