Imo LP Candidate Accuses INEC of Hindering BVAS Inspection

Senator Athan Achononu from the Labour Party (LP) has raised serious concerns regarding the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and its actions following the Imo State governorship election held 19 days ago. Accusing INEC of obstructing access to crucial election materials necessary for his case at the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, Senator Achononu expressed frustration over the refusal to allow inspection of the Bi-modal Voter Accreditation System (B-VAS) despite a court order.

He alleged that the delay in allowing the inspection was a deliberate tactic orchestrated by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to impede his petition filing, potentially leading to its dismissal on technical grounds. Senator Achononu called upon President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to compel INEC to ensure transparency in the electoral process.

During a stakeholders meeting, the LP candidate revealed that despite assurances from the INEC Chairman about collations starting from the ward to the local government before the state, no collation took place at any ward. He accused INEC of colluding with the ruling party to announce unsigned results, despite objections from party agents about the credibility of those results.

Senator Achononu expressed hope for justice in the judiciary, despite the challenges faced, stating that not all hope is lost. The allegations raised shed light on the complexities and controversies surrounding the recent governorship election in Imo State.
