Cancel Anambra guber poll now – Election monitors

The coalition   through its spokesperson, Emeka Izuchukwu of the Transparency Centre Network observed that the INEC gave a different  final voters’ register CDs to the political parties on Wednesday November 13, last week,  as against the provisions of the Electoral Act that prescribes 30 days for display of voters’ registers  in polling units before the election.
He said the said pasted voters’ registers were quite different from the registers used for the elections.
Izuchukwu  equally observed that the Anambra governorship election was a big blow to the avowed resolve of President Goodluck Jonathan  to have one-man, one-vote system as enshrined in his   transformation agenda, describing the Anambra exercise as a sham, characterized by disenfranchisement of voters – occasioned by omission of names of eligible voters from the voters’ register.
The election monitoring group spokesperson observed that at the cluster centres numbering 40, electoral materials were littered everywhere due to the refusal protesting NYSC members to commence work over nonpayment of their allowances, just as he said the consequence of these  was that materials went late to polling units and also led to no-voting with results sheets missing in most cases
He expressed sadness about the compromise of security operatives saying further that despite repeated clamour by civil society groups in the past for INEC  to make provisions for the timely dispatch of electoral materials to polling  booths on election days, the reverse was the case in the aforesaid election which he described as a macabre dance  being orchestrated by INEC in Anambra State.
He said the  November governorship election  was marred by unpreparedness of INEC through  its inability to make provisions for adequate polling officers to man each polling station, adding that in most cases, a national youth service corps member attended to a voter register that contains over 900 names across the state.
