APC Candidate In Delta Accuses INEC Of Frustrating Inspection Of Materials


All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate for Sapele state constituency of Delta State, Hon. Felix Anirah, has accused officials of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in the state of attempts to frustrate his case at the tribunal sitting in Asaba.

Anirah specifically alleged that INEC officials were frustrating him and his team of lawyers from inspecting election materials used in the April 11 state Asembly election in the state, where Hon. Monday Igbuya of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was declared winner.

It would be recalled that Anirah has dragged Igbuya, who is now the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, to the State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Asaba.

Tribunal chairman, Justice A A I Banjoko had on July 8 granted an order for a joint inspection of the ballot boxes and ballot papers, used in all the ward/ polling units that make up the entire constituency.

The court also made an order directing a recount with particular reference to votes of the 1st Petitioner/ Applicant and the 1st Respondent, following a motion on notice filed by the counsel to the petitioner Barr. Ikhide Ehighelua, dated July 6.
