Results of bye-election have been written – Labour Party makes allegations
Labour Party Chieftain in Enugu state Barrister Lucky Chukwu has alleged that result sheets for Enugu South urban state Constituency bye election have been rigged without the election holding yet.
Chukwu who addressed newsmen by 9 am said that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has failed to produce the result sheets, alleging that the commission has already written the results being conducted in eight polling units of the Constituency.
Chukwu said: “I’ve vowed that democracy will survive. In Enugu South, at about midnight election results were carted away. The state Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Chukwuemeka Chukwu and the police carted away the result sheets. the results have already been written.
“BVAS must be used, the Electoral Officer, Francis Chigbo refuses to show the electorates the results sheets, results must be uploaded in IREV and I challenge INEC to do that.
“The REC has made himself invisible and inaccessible for him to achieve what he promised the government. I’m telling the security agencies to tell INEC not to cause problems.”
