Dead people voted in Ohafia, says APGA candidate

The Abia-North senatorial candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance in the April legislative election,   Chief David Onuoha-Bourdex, has told the election petitions tribunal sitting in Umuahia that dead people voted in Ohafia.
Onuoha-Bourdex, who stated this while testifying before the tribunal on Tuesday said that the results of the election which favored the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, showed that dead people voted for him.
The APGA candidate has since merged his petition with that of ex-Gov. Orji Uzor Kalu of the Progressive People’s Alliance to challenge the victory of Ohuabunwa.
Onuoha-Bourdex, who was cross-examined by the respondents’ lawyers, including Donald De-Wigwe, lead counsel for Ohuabunwa, and Livy Uzoukwu, counsel for the Independent National Electoral Commission, said that even INEC confirmed that there were widespread irregularities in the zone during the election.
He said that the committee set up by the Resident Electoral Commissioner for the state discovered that the outcome of the election was heavily manipulated in the favor of the PDP’s candidate.
Accusing INEC of colluding with the PDP to rig the election, the APGA candidate argued that if the votes were properly counted, he would score a total of 37,115 votes against his opponent’s 28, 800.
