He stated that any area “where ballot boxes were seized or where voting was marred by any violence would be voided.”
He made this known while carrying out a campaign to enlighten residents on their franchise right in Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo.
“INEC will not accept results in areas where ballot papers or boxes are carted away by hoodlums or any group or individuals. The election in that area will be cancelled.”
“What INEC needs is cooperation from members of the community.”
“If INEC does not receive the cooperation of people in the communities, things will not be okay. I advise politicians and stakeholders to play by the rules and play good politics,” he said.
INEC is committed to making 2019 elections free and fair.
