2019: INEC reveals what could lead to cancellation of elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, says it will cancel election conducted in any ward where there are instances of irregularities.
This was disclosed by the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Imo State, Prof. Francis Ezeonu, who added that elections in areas where ballot boxes were seized or where voting was marred by any violence would also be voided.

The electoral commissioner stated this on Friday while carrying out sensitization campaign in Aboh Mbaise Local Government area of Imo state.

He stated that INEC was prepared for free and fair elections devoid of violence and intimidation and urged stakeholders to cooperate with the commission to achieve this objective.

According to him, “INEC will not accept results in areas where ballot papers or boxes are carted away by hoodlums or any group or individuals. Election in that area will be cancelled.

“What INEC needs is cooperation from members of the community.

“If INEC does not receive cooperation of people in the communities, things will not be okay. I advise politicians and stakeholders to play by the rules and play good politics,” he said.

Ezeonu reiterated the commitment of INEC to conduct credible polls in the forthcoming general elections.

He urged political office holders to always ensure that members of their constituencies enjoy dividends of democracy to pave the way for their re-election.
