Anambra Election: Rights Group calls for cancellation
Wants INEC ICT Director Sacked

The International Society for Civil Liberty and Rule of Law (Intersociety) has called for the cancellation of the Anambra State Governorship Election
In a statement by the Chairman, Board of Trustees BoT of the rights group signed by Nze Emeka Umeagbalasi and Legal Adviser, Chidimma Udegbunam the group called for immediate sack of INEC Director Of ICT, Chidi Nwafor.
The group accused him of “high-tech rigging of Anambra poll by perpetrating mass failure of BVAS Voters Capturing Machines with some principal national network providers in many, if not most of the polling centers across the State”
Intersociety said : “The BVAS mass failure or malfunctioning of same has rigged out over 70% of the courageous voters that had come out to be electronically captured to vote. We have gathered from many, if not most of the polling booths in the state and across the state’s three senatorial districts, 326 wards and 5,720 polling centers that failure of the BVAS machines is widespread and has forced over 70% of the voters not to be captured; thereby rubbishing the popularity and credibility of the entire exercise and paving the way for the long rumoured rigging and preparation of ground for declaration and imposition of an unpopular and unacceptable candidate as the next “Anambra Governor-Elect”.
” It also credibly appears that the rigging is a high tech one spearheaded by the INEC’s ICT done in conspiracy with some principal national network providers. It must be remembered that the same Chidi Nwafor was at the center of allegation of rigging back in November 2017 Anambra Governorship Poll during which the commission controversially announced whopping 8,540 voters as “having been accredited but did not vote”; only for the number to be discovered later to have emanated from criminally uploaded procured PVCs as “validly cast votes” who were not criminally thump-printed to match the number of the massively procured and criminally uploaded PVCs”.

The group said “therefore, it is our strong call on INEC to sack its ICT National Director and cancel and repeat the poll so as to give same the credibility and popularity it deserves. INEC must also reverse this high tech rigging and find alternatives to the massive failure of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System so that voters in the state can vote massively and conscientiously”.

The rights group however said they specially commended the Anambra voters who “doggedly and courageously defied the security threats all over the state’s political and electoral spaces to come out to vote the candidates of their choice only to be massively disappointed by the Electoral Commission”.
“This is more so when there are few hours to the end of the charade poll with uncertainties still hanging around over 70% of the intended voters.” He ended.
