Anambra Polls: INEC Blames IPOB Over Low Turn Out Of Voters

Following the Anambra Polls, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has reportedly blamed IPOB for the low turnout of voters during the governorship election held on Saturday.

This was reportedly disclosed by INEC’s Supervising Resident Electoral Commissioner to Anambra, Sam Egwu, while speaking with Channels TV on Sunday.

According to him, “There is a whole state of fear that has been created by the politics of agitation for a separate state in this part of the country.”

He stated that, “IPOB has been able to enforce the sit-at-home order over time. So the fear of IPOB has become the beginning of wisdom.”

He made it known that, “We have had a problem with extremely low voter turnout. The voter turnout, I think, if you are scientific in terms of what we are seeing in many local governments, you are actually dealing with less than 25 per cent voter turnout, and this is not really good for our democracy.”
