Anambra Decides: Confusion at Nziko and Uko As INEC Relocates Voting Centre

The Nation: There was confusion over a voting centre in Nziko in Oyi Local Government Area as two major polling units there had to be urgently relocated for security reasons.

Voters were said to have come out for accreditation but did not meet any voting officer there.

It led to panic calls to the Independent National Electoral Commission headquarters, but it was later learnt that the National Commissioner in charge of Oyi LGA, Amb. Ahmed Wali, intervened to resolve the problem.

The notorious centre, said to be located inside a thick forest, is known as a rigging centre in Anambra.

Political parties, such as the All Progressives Congress (APC) had to cry out to INEC for the centre to be relocated.

It was learnt that the centre was eventually moved near a school.

However, in Anambra East and West, accreditation went on smoothly.

All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate Willie Obiano was accredited at about 10.30am at his Ward in Aguleri, Anambra East.
