The Divine Mandate Organization for the re-election of Governor David Umahi in the March 2, 2019 governorship election has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), in collaboration with the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Senator Sonni Ogbuoji, has concluded arrangement to pre-allocate 200,000 votes to him ahead of the forthcoming poll.

The campaign organisation, in a statement issued on Monday in Abakaliki by its Chairman on Strategy, Chief Emmanuel Igwe, alleged that the plot would be done “through printing of Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) by one senatorial candidate of the APC (names withheld) in one of the North Central states whose company is been used to perfect the impunity.”

According to him, the security agencies should know that any attempt to subvert the will of Ebonyi people will be a call to anarchy.

The statement reads in part: “It has come to my knowledge the devilish plan of the gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi State, Senator Sonni Ogbuoji, in liaison with some top ranking officials of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to pre-allocate 200,000 votes to the APC guber candidate ahead of the election.

“This is being done through (the) printing of PVCs by one senatorial candidate of APC (names withheld) in one of the North Central states whose company is been used to perfect the impunity. In their own thinking, they want to allocate and spread votes within some selected polling units.

“We are aware of the slush funds that have been mapped out for this act which will serve as a bribe to INEC officials and certain corrupt security operatives. The security agencies should know that any attempt to subvert the will of Ebonyi people will be a call to anarchy.

“Ebonyians should feel free to cast their votes as all necessary efforts will be made to protect the sanctity of the ballot.”
