The gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party in Imo State, Senator Athan Achonu, expressed concerns on Saturday, asserting that democracy in the country is under threat due to the alleged electoral manipulations during the state’s election. Achonu lamented the reported instances of electoral irregularities and emphasized the resistance of the masses against attempts to undermine the people’s will.
He highlighted instances where INEC staff purportedly refused to sign or upload results, citing the intervention of security operatives as a crucial factor in the uploading process. Achonu suggested that his local ties might have played a role in overcoming obstacles, citing areas like Aboh Mbaise where result sheets were reportedly lacking.
Despite the challenges observed, the LP candidate confidently claimed to be leading in the election. He asserted that, despite efforts to thwart their success, the people of Imo State, under his candidacy, would not allow manipulation. Achonu urged INEC to acknowledge the prevailing ground reality and declare the results accurately, emphasizing that the outcome should remain unchanged.
