Uncontrollable laughter swept the floor of Anambra state House of Assembly as Lawmakers under the platform of All Progressive Congress (APC) abandoned the plenary and walked-out angrily while the session was on-progress.
The Lawmakers, Hon. Tonyoneweek Mounagor, representing Idemili North Constituency and Hon. Kenechukwu Chukwuemeka of Awka South 1. Constituency, vacated the hallow chamber last Tuesday while Hon. Chugbo Enwezor (APGA), Onitsha North 1 constituency rose to commend the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Nigerian Police, the Nigerian Youth Social Corp members (NYSC) for the successful conduct of the November 16thgubernatorial poll in the state.
Hon. Enwezor who also described as unconstitutional and baseless, the call for cancellation of the governorship election by some political parties and aggrieved individuals, noted that section 1, subsection 3 of electoral act has no such provision since the Presiding Officers, party agents and the electorates were present while it was announced at collation centers.
Continuing, the Lawmaker who doubles as Chairman, House Committee on Judiciary, said the election was the most freest and fair he ever witnessed in his lifetime even as he extolled the electoral umpire for going ahead to fix supplementary poll on 30th November as a way of correcting anomalies witnessed at some polling units.
Orient Daily observed that the APC Lawmakers at their separate chambers, quickly and quietly picked their files and left in succession immediately the APGA chieftain pronounced “Mr. Speaker, I want to Commend INEC…” to the amusement of their colleagues-APGA and PDP members including the general public who sat at Gallery as they burst into excessive laughter.
