The Senator representing Abia North Senatorial zone Senator Mao Ohuabunwa has admonished INEC to reassure Abia North Constituents of their readiness to conduct a free, fair and credible election come Saturday 23rd February 2019.
The Senator who said this today while addressing news men in Umuahia stated that his concern stems from the numerous claims by the Former Governor of Abia State and APC senatorial candidate Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, of how he will use federal might to rig the election.
In his words “I wonder why someone will make such claims that INEC, DSS, Army and other security agents are in his pocket. Even going ahead to say that the upcoming election is an exercise in futility. Such statements should be investigated because we know the antecedent of the former Governor. ”
“You can all recall that in 2007 when Orji Uzor Kalu was Governor, Abians were still voting and results were declared. That is why his claims and threats should not be ignored.”
The Senator went ahead to state that while he has been going about the whole constituency, commissioning his projects and selling himself to the people, the former Governor is relying on sharp practices.
He urged INEC to come out openly and caution Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu if his claims are false and mere word of mouth.
