Agents of the Labour Party (LP) at Ikenegbu area of Owerri Municipal Council in Imo State have protested the alleged swapping of Polling Unit officers.


A man who described himself as Madu, one of the potential voters who said he is a party member, said it was surprising that the PU personnel already deployed to the voting centre were changed this morning.

Speaking with reporters, the spokesperson for the Labour Party’s governorship candidate, Chibuikem Diala, said that INEC was doing the same thing in all parts of the state.

He said that the campaign organization had discovered that the actual PU officers already trained by INEC were dropped at the last minute, and people who did not take part in the INEC’s training were deployed to conduct the election.
