March 9 election: Enugu APC calls for postponement

Members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Enugu State chapter, Thursday, took a protest to the Enugu office of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, demanding postponement of the governorship and House of Assembly elections in the State.

The party members were led by the State Chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye.

DAILY POST reports that this came as an Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal earlier in the day reinstated Senator Ayogu Eze as the party’s governorship candidate.

An Abuja Federal High Court had sacked Ayogu and ordered the INEC to recognize Barr. George Ogara. However, in a judgement today, the Appellate Court said Senator Eze remained the party’s candidate.

Following the development, the party members demanded a postponement of the exercise to enable them carry out campaign across the State.

“We have written the INEC; we are demanding that they should postpone the exercise. They should push it forward to enable us carry out our campaign,” Nwoye said.

Earlier Senator Eze had boasted that with the Court verdict, the coast was clear for him.

He said nobody would be able to stop his political movement, which he described as a tornado.

“I want to assure you that our spirit is not down. This tornado is on the move,” he stated.
