The Labour Party in Imo State has raised concerns about a purported plan by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct the November 11 election in polling units where no voters are registered. According to the Imo LP Chairman, Mr Callistus Ihejiagwa, 38 polling units were designated as zero polling units, but he alleged that there was pressure to hold elections there, particularly in areas considered advantageous for the All Progressives Congress (APC). Ihejiagwa called on authorities and international observers to investigate the claims and ensure a fair electoral process. INEC, however, clarified that elections would not be held in these 38 units due to zero registration, reaffirming their decision. The LP also condemned the reported assault on the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress and urged the Inspector-General of Police to enhance police readiness ahead of the elections.
