Blame INEC if Anambra election fails – Group



A NON-governmental, non-partisan pressure group, Save Anambra Group (SAG) has said that ndi Anambra should hold Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) responsible if the forthcoming governorship election scheduled for November is truncated.

  SAG made the assertion while accusing INEC of fueling controversies over candidature in some political parties ahead the election.

  A statement issued by National Coordinator of SAG, Dr. Okwuoma Okeke, in Awka yesterday frowned at the activities of INEC, which they said have denied some political parties of their choices of candidates, by recognising other candidates that are not sponsored and spported by them.

  According to the statement issued on Monday in Awka, and signed by the, the group expressed worry that the INEC appears complicit, by giving tacit encouragement to some individual/group in the crisis brewing among contenders in the various political parties.

  “We have watched in consternation the unfolding drama and treachery surrounding the acceptance of candidates for the Anambra gubernatorial elections, and have reasons to conclude that INEC has not shown enough independence in its conduct so far. How can any sane person not see the obvious attempt to whittle down the strength of some parties by denying their candidates recognition? Why the hurried acceptance of a court judgement from Birnin Kudu, and yet dithering to accept vacation of the same by a superior court?” he queried.
