Dr. Gabriel Othong, the Returning Officer for the Anambra governorship election in the Idemili South Local Government Area, claims that 41 of the 42 result sheets for 89 polling stations were carted away.

The Returning Officer said that the Supervising Polling Officer (SPO) assigned to the area carried away the affected areas’ result sheets.

 

According to him, no election was held in Oba Ward 1, Oba Ward 11, or Akukwu Ward in Anambra State’s Idemili South Local Government Area.

 

“One of the SPOs carted 41 Result Sheets out of the 42 Result sheets meant for the 89 polling units in the affected wards.

 

“Over 40, 000 voters were not able to vote in the affected areas due to the development,” he said.

 

The Returning Officer said some of the polling units did not get the deployment of electoral officials due to cases of gunshots.

 

Chief Ebere Obiakor, the agent of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said there was election in those places but the results were not collated.

However, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) collation agent, Dr. Alex Obiogbolu, refuted the APC agent’s claim, claiming that no poll was held in any of the impacted areas.

 

Senator Victor Umeh of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) agreed with Obiogbolu, claiming that no poll was held in certain areas.

 

Meanwhile, in Idemili South, the top three parties received 1,036, APGA-2,312 and PDP-2,016 votes.

 

Only 6, 622 voters were accredited in the Idemili South Local Government Area, which has a total of 112, 652 voters.
