Anambra Election: Shocking Results From Polling Unit Of Deputy Governor Who Defected To APC

20211106100839 887154

Nkem Okeke, Deputy Governor of Anambra State, who defected from the All Progressives Grand Alliance to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the buildup to the election, failed to deliver his polling unit for his new party on Saturday.

His former party carried the day at Umueze Awozu, Enugwu-Ukwu Ward 3, Polling Unit 005. where Okeke cast his ballot.

While APGA polled 82 votes at the polling unit, APC garnered 61 votes.

Although it was not meant to be an open ballot, Okeke displayed his ballot paper openly after thumb printing on Saturday.

Justifying his action, Okeke said he did so to dispel the rumour making the round that he had re-defected to APGA,

“I had to reveal my ballot paper because there have been rumours that I had defected back to APGA, but that is not true. You just saw that I voted for my party, APC,” he said.

He also expressed satisfaction at the new technology, the Biometric Voters Accreditation System (BVAS), introduced by INEC at the on-going governorship election in the state.

“This is the easiest that I have had in voting experience ever; the process is unified and as you can see, I have just voted. In previous elections, I have always had problem with fingerprint; but this is different, ’’ he said.
