Edo APC crisis: INEC only monitored one primary election - REC

 

The Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Edo State, Dr Anugbum Onuoha, on Monday said that the Commission only monitored the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship primary that took place at the Lushville Hotel and Suites.

The REC disclosed this during a press briefing in Benin City.

Political thugs invaded Lushville Hotel and Suite, while collation and announcement of results was ongoing, disrupted the exercise, assaulted journalists and destroyed their working tools.

The thugs also beat up APC electoral officers.

The REC noted that the Supreme Court has taken a decision on the monitoring of party primaries.

“The national body will write to INEC national chairman of the venue, and the date and the time of the primary, and that we followed strictly.

“Any political party primaries that was not minuted to us by our headquarters, we will not monitor.

“We were notified by APC and we monitored the one we were invited which was at Lushville Hotel. I was there, that was where I went,” he said.
