Imo Guber:INEC Planning To Cook Up Result For Hope Uzodimma – Group Alleges.

A coalition of civil society groups has alleged plans by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cook up results for the November 11th Imo governorship election in favour of the incumbent governor, Hope Uzodimma.

In a joint press conference held in Enugu on Sunday, the groups, including the International Society for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law (Intersociety) and Coalition of Democracy and Human Rights Organisations, claimed they had evidence that INEC had no plan to organise a free, fair and credible election in Imo.

Chairman of the board of trustees of Intersociety, Emeka Umeagbalasi, who addressed the press conference, said the winner of the November 11 election in Imo, if conducted freely and fairly, would not score more than 90,000 to 130,000 votes out of total lawful votes cast of not more than 300,000.

Umeagbalasi stated that 1.8 million (out of the state’s 2.4 million PVC holders) of the registered voting population had been displaced from their voting areas, leaving Imo with only 600,000 eligible voters, out of which 300,000 may vote.

He maintained that the coalition’s interest in the Imo election is to ensure transparency, fairness, and the protection of human rights.
