We view with grave concern the reported missing of some INEC result sheets for the botched National Assembly Election in Enugu West Senatorial District. We wonder what would have become of the result of the election in Enugu West in view of the missing result sheets If not for the postponement of the election last Saturday.
We are aware of the activities Dr Joseph Valentine Iloh, who is the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner for Abia State and a cousin to the APC senatorial candidate for Enugu West District, Mrs Ibekaku Nwagwu.
We note with consternation the brazen boasts of the aides of Mrs Ibeakau Nwagwu on how they are conniving with Dr Joseph Iloh and some vested INEC officials in Enugu State to rig and manipulate the outcome of the Enugu West Senatorial Election. It is common knowledge that in most public places in Enugu West, the Aides of Mrs Ibea Nwagwu always boast that the result of election in Enugu West election has already been written by INEC in favour of the APC candidates. It is therefore not surprising that some INEC result sheets for the election in Enugu West District are missing.
We hereby call on INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu to order for immediate return of the missing result sheets within 24 hours and make all those who are involved in the result sheet theft to face the full weight of the law. Also, we request the INEC Chairman to call Dr Joseph Valentine Iloh to order to save the already battered image of INEC as an unbiased umpire.
