Two million Voters Risk Disenfranchment in Anambra Governorship Election
The National Conscience Party (NCP) has said that
No fewer than two million people would be disenfranchised in
Anambra State, if the Independent National Electoral Commission
(INEC) does not carry out voter revalidation exercise before the
Next governorship election come November.
The party, founded by late Chief Abdul-Ganiyu Fawehinmi,
raised the alarm at the end of its South-East zonal meeting which
held at the weekend in Awka, the Capital of Anambra State.
In a communiqué endorsed by the party’s South East zonal chairman,
Prince Goodluck Obi and all the state’s chairmen, the party asked the
electoral umpire to hasten preparations for the election by releasing timetable
for revalidation of voters’ register and voter education.
The NCP said it had advised its members in the 326 wards in 21 local
Government areas to vote for its candidate during the governorship election.
