Information available to 247ureports.com obtained through sources present at the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] in Awka, Anambra State, today – indicate that all might not be well with the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] as concerns the governorship elections in Anambra State.

As gathered, the Anambra State REC, Prof Onukaogu – a notorious INEC character who has been associated with shady electoral practices in Anambra was reported to have denied the PDP state chairman from received the electronic copy of the voter’s register for Anambra State. The political parties who are reported to be presenting a candidate for the Anambra gubernatorial elections were handed electronic copies of the voters register this morning at the INEC office today’s morning.

Interestingly, as the REC official [Onukaogu] distributed the registers to the respective parties, he told the two PDP state chairmen – representing the two factions of PDP in Anambra – that there was a court injunction barring the INEC from giving the state PDP any materials from the INEC – that they needed to go and resolve the court cases before a voters register will be handed to them.

One of the faction chairmen of PDP, Ken Emeakayi did not take the news calmly. Ken Emeakayi was reported to have lost his temper and a shouting match ensued between him and Onukaogu. He wondered which court injunction he was referring to – but Onukaogu could not respond – or give better reasons for his denial of voters register to the PDP.  

Prof Onukaogu and Ken Emeakayi’s shouting match lasted about 40minutes before tempers flared down. Onukaogu was accused of having a political bias.


Stay tuned.
