Anambra 2021-INEC facing many litigations


The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has lamented the level of distraction the commission is facing as a result of litigations arising from the Anambra State governorship primary elections.

The commission said it was frustrating that new court orders from all parts of the country keep flooding the commission’s headquarters on a daily basis, causing it to keep recognizing one candidate over the other, and changing same again in the major political parties.

National Commissioner for Voter Education, Barr Festus Okoye stated this in Awka on Monday, during an implementation meeting on voter enlightenment and publicity for 2021 Anambra State governorship election.

The meeting was attended by the Resident Electoral Commissioner of Anambra State, Dr Nkwachukwu Orji, the heads of the commission in all the 21 local government areas of Anambra State and some stakeholders.
