Asogwa recalled that the gubernatorial and state assembly elections took place in Enugu State and in 27 other states across Nigeria on 18th March, 2023, saying that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was declared winner of the election amidst controversies.
“As you may know, collation was suspended midway into the declaration of a winner of the gubernatorial election due to the malpractice that took place in Nkanu East Local Government Area (LGA) of the State.
“According to the figures gleaned from the INEC IREV, Nkanu East LGA recorded a total number of 7,190 accredited voters on election day.
“However, when votes were declared, the PDP was allocated a total number of 30,350 votes while a total number of 1,855 was allocated to the Labour Party.”
Asogwa said in Udenu LGA, the result of the state constituency election was not declared because there was violence in 13 polling units with a cumulative number of 7,709 potential voters with PVCs collected.
