According to the PUNCH Newspapers, the Independent National Electoral Commission has cancelled the result of the senatorial election in Anambra Central Senatorial District. Returning Officer, Mr.Alex Anene dismissed and under FIRE!
“The declaration of the result ran into a deadlock when Anene said on Sunday that he was being pressurised by officials of the state government and APGA to declare Akunyili as the winner of the poll…..”
“He had told newsmen in Awka that the interests promised him a house, scholarship for his children and N10 million if he declared Akunyili as the winner of the election and accepted the ‘mutilated’ result from Njikoka Local Government Area.
He said he rejected the gifts and was quitting the assignment because his conscience would not allow him to announce a mutilated result.
Ngige swiftly petitioned INEC, asking it to cancel the result in Anaocha Local Government Area because 22,000 votes were allocated in it to Akunyili.”
You have got to be kidding me!!! I am trying so hard not to laugh out loud. Infact, I am confused. WHO promised WHO what? Who pressurised the INEC Official? Can somebody tell me I am dreaming? Mrs. Dora Akinyili of all people? Mother of Intergrity? No, It can’t be!!!! Spirit of confusion, I bind you!! Get thee behind Anambra State.
Lets keep on Reading……
“”However, at a separate briefing at her campaign office in Awka, Akunyili said that before the election, Anene was arrested with fake poll monitors and later released on bail. She alleged that instead of going to report to the police, Anene called journalists and raised allegations against her party”
*Shaking my head* I wonder how many other states were “rigged /rug” – Laughing my head off at the words “Rigged” and “Rug “. Please pick one and fill in the blanks…. While you do that, I am just going to rebuke the rest of my thoughts and watch how the rest of this Drama unfolds.
Naija we hail thee!! I humbly bow.
