Party agents protest, call for cancellation of elections in Akwa Ibom

Some party agents in Unit 17, Ward 2, Oruku Anam in Akwa Ibom State, have called for the cancellation of results in the area.

In a letter signed by the aggrieved party agents tagged ‘Electoral Fraud and Request for Cancellation of Election in unit 017, the agents claimed the exercise was marred by massive fraud, including rigging for the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, by the police and other security agents.

The agents gave five reasons why the election in the area must be cancelled, stating that there were no results sheets as it was allegedly removed by the PDP.

They also alleged that the Electoral officials were compromised, having accredited over 50 voters without ballot papers.

The agents alleged that the PDP brought out a huge number of voters’ cards and handed them over to some persons who got same accreditation for the exercise. These, among other reasons stated in the letter, were the reasons the agents said the exercise should be cancelled.

The letter was signed by the agents of the APC, ZLP, YPP, LP, and APGA.

Corroborating the allegation, Honourable Bassey Etienem, who shared a video from his polling unit, accused the men dressed as police and wearing state security tags of working for the ruling party in the state.

Etienem said: “My anger is the security agents assigned to us that I called, and he asked me to send pics and videos, which I did but did not respond. I had to resort to self-help. What if I had died in the process? There was no military intervention from anywhere when we were being brutalized and harassed by the fake police officers. I went into a battlefield yesterday and not an election.”
