PDP Defeats APC in Enugu LG Polls by Winning All Positions
The Peoples Democratic Party has won all positions contested for in the November 4 local council elections in Enugu State.
The Chairman of Enugu State Independent Electoral Commission, Dr. Mike Ajogwu, SAN, who announced the results at the commission’s secretariat in Enugu on Sunday, declared the PDP candidates winners of the chairmanship positions in all the 17 local government areas in the state.
The PDP candidates equally won the councillorship elections in all the wards.
There are 260 wards in Enugu State, and, according to ENSIEC, voting did not take place in two of the wards – Obioma and Eke wards in Udi Local Government Area.
Eke Ward is the home of some APC stalwarts in Enugu State, including the Director-General of Voice of Nigeria, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Godfrey Onyeama.
The PDP swept all the 258 wards which were declared by the electoral commission.
The development meant that only the PDP members now occupy elective positions at all levels of government in Enugu State.
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress has rejected the results announced by ENSIEC.
The Chairman of the APC in Enugu State, Dr. Ben Nwoye, described the polls as “a sham.”
Reacting to the development, he said, “Like I predicted yesterday (Saturday), the ENSIEC Chairman, Dr. Mike Ajogwu, has rubbished himself with this sham he put together in the name of election just to satisfy his paymasters, the PDP.
“It is quite unfortunate that there was widespread of violence and bloodbath in Enugu today, simply because ENSIEC wants to please the PDP.
“There was no result sheet in all the polling units, yet Dr. Ajogwu called what he did election.”
