Enugu State APC Governorship Candidate Boycotts Election

The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in Enugu State, Ayogu Eze, a senator, on Saturday boycotted the governorship/state assembly elections in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported Mr Eze told journalists in his country home at Umuozzi in Enugu-Ezike, Igboeze North council of the state he was protesting his non-inclusion among governorship candidates contesting in the state.

Mr Eze despite the Appeal Court’s order to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) reinstating him as the APC governorship candidate in the election, the final list of governorship candidates published by the electoral umpire left his name out.

“INEC claims to have party logos on the ballot paper. So, why didn’t they publish only the logos of all the political parties and leave the candidates?’’Mr Eze said.

The APC candidate said that his supporters refused to vote because they were angry they had not been treated well by INEC.

He said he pleaded with them to go and vote but they insisted they would not vote until INEC created a level playing ground.
