INEC had every opportunity to analyze properly the total votes cast for and received by each candidate in the last Anambra gubernatorial election to avoid the deceit that has now been uncovered. Even Professor Soludo who is aware that he would not benefit should there be a run-off election since it would be between the two candidates that have the highest number of votes cast, has recanted his conceding of victory which led him to congratulate Obi. He is now singing a different tune, saying that Obi did not win the election. This is to show how deceitful INEC was in the exercise given that the election was concluded in spite of the disenfranchisement of registered voters, only 16% of them were allowed to vote. This was caused by INEC’s inefficiency. The fact that Obi did not score 25% of the total number of votes cast in two-thirds of the 21 Local Government Areas as required by the Electoral Act renders the result inconclusive.  The law must be followed to the letter. There is no way this illegality would stand the test of time and moreover everyone that congratulated Obi did so because they depended on the declaration of the INEC. As a result of this situation which nonetheless made mockery of the result, Professor Maurice Iwu requires a sack and a run-off election conducted between Obi and Ngige.  If after that Obi wins, then well and good but the illegality committed by INEC should not be allowed otherwise it would continue in the coming elections.
