#AnambraDecides: Obiano, Wife Cast Their Vote


Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has voted in the ongoing governorship election in the South-East state.

The governor alongside his wife, Ebelechukwu Obiano, voted around 9:25 am at their polling unit located inside Eri Primary School, Polling Unit 004, Otuocha Ward Ward 1, Aguleri in Anambra East Local Government Area.

Speaking to reporters after exercising his civic duty, the governor applauded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for starting the election early.

The governor also commended security operatives for maintaining peace so far, urging them not to intimidate voters.

Obiano, however, admonished eligible voters to come out and perform their civic duty without fear.

He said: “I ask Anambra people to come out and vote. Everywhere is peaceful. Come out and vote”

Recall that the governor had earlier alleged election rigging by the All Progressives Congress, APC, hours before Saturday governorship polls.

The sitting governor accused the nation’s ruling party of filling up ten local government result sheets ahead of the polls.

Speaking through Don Adinuba, the state Commissioner for information and Public Enlightenment, Obiano listed the local government areas where result sheets hours to the polls.

The governor said the APC was plotting to compromise officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Again he alleged that a former Senate President, former Deputy Governor, and a current state Governor from the Southeast are joint heads in the plot.

The statement signed and issued by Adinuba alleged that APC is simply taking advantage of President Muhammadu Buhari’s delay asserting the new Electoral Bill which makes electronic voting mandatory to perpetuate the fraud.
