INEC prepares for Anambra central re-run

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared that it has commenced activities towards conducting the Anambra Central Senatorial re-run election scheduled to hold on January 13, 2018.
The state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Nkwachkwu Orji who affirmed that the rerun must hold as scheduled, said personnel and officials to be deployed have since commenced training, insisting that her legal department studied the judgments and asked it to go ahead with the election as ordered by the court of appeal as against Tsoho Federal High Court judgement.
The zone has been without a senator since 2015 when a Court of Appeal, Enugu Division, sacked Uche Ekwunife who won the election to represent the zone. The Court asked INEC to conduct a rerun in the district within 90 days while disqualifying Ekwunife and her political party, the Peoples Democratic Party from participating in the rerun.
