The Independent National Electoral Commission had, on Sunday, declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Amaka Ugwueze, the winner of the bye-election.
However, the All Progressives Congress members in Enugu State, on Monday, protested the result of last Saturday’s bye-election for Isi-Uzo state constituency.
Some of the placards displayed the protesters said;
“PDP used neighbourhood watches with guns on our voters.” “APC rejects result of Isi-Uzo state House of Assembly election.” “We demand a review of the INEC result for Isi-Uzo bye-election.” “INEC ad-hoc staff were bribed and collaborated with PDP to rig the votes.” “Isi-Uzo bye-election was marred with irregularities, thuggery and rigging by PDP.”
Reacting to the protests, Emeka Ononamadu, The INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, said; “Why are they protesting. Their agents were there when the results were released.”
