Fight Between Politicians/parties After Enugu LGA Election Was Boycotted. by EricIyke: 3:36pm On Nov 05, 2017
Ex-Enugu Governor Wants Cancelation of Local GOVT Election reported by News Agency of Nigeria.
There was no election according to Sullivan Chime.
A former governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime, has called for the cancellation and rescheduling of the Saturday local government election in the state.
Mr. Chime also told the Enugu State Independent Electoral Commission (ENSIEC) not to contemplate announcing results
arising from the exercise. The former governor made the call on Saturday night in Enugu while briefing journalists on the
outcome of the exercise.
He said that the call was necessary to save ENSIEC from ridiculing itself by announcing ‘fictitious results’. He said that from the
events that played out across the state, it was obvious that the electoral umpire was not prepared for the election.
“They should go back and do their
homework. No election held today. They should reschedule the election and be more prepared for it and forget about electoral
fraud,” he said.
Mr. Chime said that it would have been in the best interest of the state government to allow for a free and fair election in order to
test their popularity.
“I believe it would have been in the interest of the government to actually allow a free and fair election. That is the only way they
can actually know their strength and whether they are doing well or not.
“If you do what it was today and you have fake results all over, they may be going in for a shocker in 2019 as the election will not be conducted by ENSIEC,” he said.
He said that his experience at his polling unit was very unfortunate and sad, adding that it was a resurgence of those primitive
days.
“I went to vote in order to encourage people around there but sadly I think we have gone back to those primitive days.
They were no result sheets and other sensitive materials.
“We observed impersonators with all sorts of cards to vote. Some were turned down while others succeeded.
“This is a situation where you have well known card carrying members of a party also functioning as electoral officials like supervisors and presiding officers. It was that bad,” he said.
Mr. Chime said that what played out during the polls could be likened “to where your
opponent is your umpire in a contest”. “I did not see anything close to an election or resembling free and fair election. In fact in
some places there were no voting at all. We describe it as unfair. “So elections properly so called did not hold in the state,” he said.
Mr. Chime said that the state government had before now held four local government elections, “but we never experienced any
such nonsense as we did today. “If this is what they plan to do in 2019 general election they should start looking for something else to do because it will not work,” Chime said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that protests by opposition parties over non-
availability of result sheets during the exercise resulted to violence in many areas.
The opposition parties had insisted that voting would not hold without the presiding officers showing them the result sheets. https://www.herald.ng/enugu-lg-election-ex-gov-chime-calls-for-cancellation-of-exercise/
