IMO:Okorocha gets jittery asks for redeployment of state R.E.C

There was renewed call Thursday for the immediate redeployment of the Imo State Resident
Electoral Commissioner (REC) Dr.
Gabriel Ada by the All Progressives
Congress (APC) and other
stakeholders in the state before the
governorship rerun election
scheduled for April 25.

The REC has also come under fire
for insisting that registered voters
who have not collected their
Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) in the
areas where the governorship
rerun election will hold in the state,
despite the expiration of the
deadline for the collection of PVC
nationwide.

Ada had during a press briefing
with journalists, refused to disclose
the number of PVC distributed in
the 200 Polling Units where the
rescheduled election will hold, as
well as the number of registered
voters in the area.

Reacting to the REC’s alleged
partisan role, the All Progressives
Congress (APC) and the Rochas
Campaign Organization, called for
his immediate redeployment ahead
of the rerun election to ensure a
free and fair polls.
The Director General of the
Campaign Organization, Barr
Ihekwumere Alaribe, said that “we
were shocked to learn that the REC
had announced that the collection
of PVC is still ongoing in the state,
even after the expiration of the
exercise nationwide. This will
amount to shifting the goal post in
the middle of the game.”
Justifying the call for Ada’s
immediate redeployment, Alaribe,
alleged that he was selective in the
cancellation of the results of the
governorship election in the favour
of the People’s Democratic Party
(PDP), adding that the APC and the
entire people of the state do no
longer have confidence in him to
supervise the rerun election.-
