ADU election ends in deadlock

DigitalSENSE Business News:

The general assembly elections of the Awba-Ofemili Development Union (ADU) in Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra State ended Tuesday, December 30, 2014 in a deadlock, reports DigitalSENSE Business News.

Correspondent on ground at the Central School Awba-Ofemili reports that the election was inclusive due to lack of due process based on ADU constitution enacted on April 15, 2001.

DigitalSENSE Business News also reports that the two major contestants for the post of the President General Of ADU, namely  Messrs Justin Oforkansi and Chukwuma Nwankwo differed on the modalities.

It was reported that Oforkansi camp were bent on the application of the ADU constitution on elections, while Nwankwo camp wanted option A4.

DigitalSENSE Business News gathered that option A4 entails that voters queue behind their candidates of choice, while ADU constitution stipulates that voting "shall be done by raising hands with eyes closed or by secret ballot."

Equally DigitalSENSE Business News gathered that deadlock was due to the inability of contestants to agree on way forward for the election which was first on the list to be conducted amongst others.

In addition,  DigitalSENSE Business News gathered there were counter allegations of mercenary importations from the neighbouring town of Ugbene and fishery settlement known as Ege in Awba-Ofemili.

These,DigitalSENSE Business News reports culminated in the inconclusive election and forced the representatives of the government and security agents who were deployed to Awba-Ofemili to withdraw to their stations without any pronouncement whatsoever on the outcome.

Just as there were allegations of non-accreditation of voters to pave way for the total number of votes to be expected.
