Tension In Ebonyi State As INEC Allegedly Delisted PDP Guber Candidate’s Name From Portal- Group Raise Alarm
The Association of Ebonyi Indigenes Socio-Cultural In the Diaspora (AEISCID), has raised the alarm over alleged delisting of the names of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidates in Ebonyi State from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) portal, blaming what it called dirty politics for the development. The group, which had earlier declared support for the Ebonyi State PDP governorship candidate, Chief Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii, however, asked voters and party supporters to be calm over the development, insisting that there was no cause for alarm.
There were reports of sudden disappearance of names of the National Assembly candidates of opposition PDP in Ebonyi State from the portal of the INEC.
In a statement released Wednesday by the AEISCID President (World-wide), Amb. Paschal Oluchukwu, the group cautioned INEC to be wary of antics of some fifth columnists within its ranks and files.
