Party agents angry at the sight of Prof Benjamin Ozurumba
Chinwe Ugele, Umuahia
The collation agents of the All Progressives Congress and All Progressives Grand Alliance with other opposition political parties have verbally attacked the collation officer for Abia governorship election, Professor Benjamin Ozurumba who they said lacks the credibility to sit at the helm of result affairs in the state.
Ozurumba who served as the collation officer for Abia state in 2015, is also the collation officer again for Abia state.
The opposition agents after registering their complaints, could not bear the officer’s silent response to their demands, hence began to question Hus integrity.
They accused him of colluding with INEC to subvert the will of the masses.
However, professor Ozurumba appealed to all parties to calm their nerves and put down their petition in writing and forward them to INEC.
It took the intervention of the a senior police officer to calm the situation and allow collation to continue.
