The gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ebonyi State, Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii has applauded the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and security agencies in the state for conducting a hitch-free presidential and National Assembly elections.
Odii made this known while speaking with newsmen shortly after casting his vote at his hometown in Isu community, Onicha LGA of Ebonyi State.
He said: “So, far I will give recommendations to security agencies, they have not been silent they have tried to create an enabling ground for everybody.
“From what I saw today, I can say that INEC is prepared to give Nigeria free and fair elections. I will commend INEC too because the distribution of material, from the report we got, showed that most of the polling units got their materials on time and their personnel also.
“I got such a report, we expected even worse than that, that’s why I said I am scoring the security agencies high because they have been doing their best to curtail the situations.”
Odii who voted around 11: 20 am, further berated desperate politicians for allegedly importing thugs with uniforms to disrupt the election. “We also got information that they brought in uniforms, thugs, and all of those to disrupt today’s election of cause they know that Ebonyi is a PDP state, they know they are not prepared for the election but PDP is prepared.
“In Ikwo we have incidences of our members being killed and kidnapped but the security agencies are on top of the situation and I’m sure they will be able to apprehend those behind it.”
