Chairman of the Labour Party (LP) in Imo state, Comrade Festus Onyekwulisi, on Saturday, raised the alarm that voters were being intimidated in the state to vote for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) during the state’s House of Assembly elections.
He urged the Police, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to invoke the necessary laws to stop the ongoing electoral malpractices, and vote buying in the state.
“Our attention has been drawn to the ongoing Vote buying and unholy intimidation of the Voters in various communities in Imo State,” Onyekwulisi said.
“We call on INEC and the Police, to invoke the necessary Powers/Laws, to STOP these criminal and unpatriotic developments which were allegedly being perpetrated by the ruling Party.
“To the electorate, don’t capitulate nor bulge to their empty threats. And if they offer you money, do well and collect their Money but vote your Conscience. It’s our stolen Patrimony, get your fair shares from them.
“Moreso, ensure that you guard your votes, keep the records of Results, and upload same to your designated situation rooms. Stay Orderly and Obediently to the electoral rules,” Onyekwulisi said.
