Okorocha conducts local government elections , 7 years after


www.odogwublog.com reports that the Imo State Government under the auspices of Rescue Mission administration of Governor Rochas OKOROCHA will conduct democratic elections this Saturday after more than seven years of administering the 27 councils with politically appointed officials.


The elections will be conducted by the State Independent Electoral Commission (ISIEC) and from the list of candidates displayed by the commission, it's only the candidates of the ruling party-APC will participant in the elections that will produced Executive Chairmen (27) and 645 councillors as against 305 INEC wards, the governor is using autonomous communities to constitute the state wards as against Federal Government approved INEC Wards.

Another important observation is that other prominent political parties in the state like PDP,APGA, LP and others are boycotting the elections, above all the state is calm as even the APC candidates "anointed" to participate in the elections are not campaigning. Certainly it will be a political Carry go.

The Governor in what seems like a smoke screen in a press statement endorsed by his Chief Press Secretary Mr Sam Onwuemeodo has called for Free and fair elections.

However, Barr Charles Ezekwem the state chairman of PDP told the Authority that the elections are charade noting that the issue of local government elections in the state is still in  Court .

Ezekwem also said that Governor Okorocha is only invoking contempt of court and the council elections will be null and void.

It is pertinent to state that barely 24 hours to this grassroot elections most people seems not to be aware of what is happening.
