Meanwhile, reports reaching us indicate that two people have been shot in Amaenyi, Awka South Local Government Area. They were allegedly attempting to steal ballot boxes. We’ll post the updates as soon as we get them.

In a related development, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned they will not accept the results of the ongoing governorship election in Anambra state unless the voting takes place in all local governments. Namely, in the APC’s strongholds of Idemili North and South, as well as in Akwa South.

The party, in a statement by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, also accused the INEC for its apparently contrived “logistic nightmare”. Thousands of voters were left unable to exercise their franchise, the party said, and demanded the immediate removal of the Resident Electoral Commissioner for Anambra, Prof. Chukwuemeka Onukogu.

APC said it was totally astonished to learn that INEC has confirmed that materials meant for Idemili North Local Government, which has 180,000 voters, have been hijacked, without saying who hijacked the ballot papers and why, and without explaining why the materials meant for APGA and PDP strongholds were not hijacked.

The party said equally astonishing is the fact that the voter’s registers for Idemili South, the direct council of the APC candidate, Dr. Chris Ngige, did not contain the names of voters in the local government, despite the assurances by INEC Chairman Attahiru Jega.

  1. I Couldn’t believe that the Anambra state gov’t has such huge amount of money that wil amount 2 each eligible voter the sum of 2000 naira while we suffer poor infrastrural development’ n’ etc

  2. ngigi should go to hell 4 all i care…he is not even ashemd and his fan are makin me believe they are fools…he is nothin but greedy man…i kw hiim as a louser and he will always be that…let him wait 4 him and ma 1st son 2 competit….olodo

  3. I think we should be fair here. Ryan, my heartfelt concern is that your written English is terrible! You need to go learn the rudiments of the language. Like John said, you have no basis for calling Ngige a loser if he has won two elections in Anambra State. Objectivity should be our watchword. I believe the most qualified should win.

  4. Bravo APGA! Bravo Willy Obiano. You just made it as we expected.
    May God- Almighty guide you efforts towards make Anambra state a better home for all citizens.
    Remain bless in jesus name, Amen.

  6. Am dissappointed in INEC becos they are a total disgrace to anambralians, shame on INEC, ALL I KNOW IS THAT IT TAKES TWO TO TANGLE and COMPROMISE.. INEC HAS COLLUDE with the ruling party to disenfranchaise the majority of the voters….THE WORST IS DAT INEC HAS CHALLENGED AND INSULTED GOD AND THE ENTIRE CHRISTIAN FAITHFUL IN NIGERIA…YOU CANEVA FIX VOTING ON THE DAY THE HAUSAS ARE GOING TO MOSQUE….WHY DID THE INEC FIX VOTING ON THE HOLY DAY THE ENTIRE CHRISTIAN FAITHFUL ARE GOING TO CHURCH….IT IS A SIN TO WORK ON SUNDAY…..GOD WILL PUNISH INEC and their partners in crime BECOS they have led the whole anambralians to sin against God just to rigg the election…..GOD WILL PUNISH THEM AND THEIR ENTIRE GENERATION….AMEN.

  7. Disenfranchise A new way of rigging election. It is simply Obvious that Ngige will eventually emerge as the winner. Anambralians it is not about the party but about the man. I cannot vote for someone I do not trust just because he is in the party I cherish Mbanuuuu!!!

  8. If it is like this that INEC has been conduction election in Nigeria, that means that 80% of legible voters has not been voting. Pls let them change that useless man called Jega, so as to avert further destruction for the upcoming 2015 general election.

  9. If u ask me, some people re afread of ngige dats y they run helter sketer jst to make sure ngige loses. Come to think of it, if nt for corruption y shld an incumbent gvnr single handedly bring out a candidate? A quesion pls, y hvnt so called Igbo party did any serious project in d state, n y hvnt they developed a capital city dat dt can b called its own? Reminder all d roads constructed by Ngige 4 d past 10yrs stil remain dsame, bt d so called Igbo party cld nt build something dt can last for it self. Point, regardless of the party Anambra needs a performer n not a blaber. Blah blah blah.

  10. My brothers and sisters, let us not judge. Let God almight Lord judge by His-self. Don’t cause ur fellow human-being, where not made to cause, love ur fellow human being as u love ur self, so pray let God almight give us a good leader like moses, who lead the people of lsraelite in land of egypt. But know that nobody can change whatever God have written. If God say that is APGA that have the sit let them go on, but if God say that is APC let the well of God be done. In jesus name. Amen.

  11. All this are earthly,leave God at of this philip,He made the saints judge that must judge the earth with Him,let spade be Ngige remain unbeatable,other party can go but not Apga.lets lean 4rm others mistake

  12. Insecurity is still our problem,(bad leaders are still sitting on the sit.how can INEC send 120 in each unit and we still have by-election(waste)of people’s effort

  13. My dear anambrarians, lets giv glory 2 God, he is worthy of our praises! I say a vry big kudus 2 my fellow anambrarians 4 nt electing ngige as our governor, odawis he would hav introduced boko haram in anambra state.
