Ozigbo casting his vote
By Valentine Amanze
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flag-bearer in the Anambra State governorship election, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo, has expressed confidence that he would win the election held on Saturday November 6, 2021.
Ozigbo spoke after casting his vote at Social Centre 010 polling centre in his hometown in Amesi, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.
He said that Ndi Anambra [Anambra people] were tired of the failure of leadership under the All Progressives Congress (APC) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) at the federal and state levels.
Ozigbo, who was accompanied by his wife, Ojiugo Ozigbo, raised concerns over the voting process, especially the unavailability of voting materials in several local government areas and the time it took him to vote.
“I’m grateful for the peaceful environment but I have mixed feelings for now. On one hand, I’m thankful that I’ve been able to vote, however, I’m a bit worried by how long it took us to vote.
“I commend INEC for introducing the machine which will help us reduce election fraud and rigging, but if this is how long it takes for one person to vote, we might need to request for an extension in the voting time to ensure that every eligible voter votes.
“So, I urge the people of Anambra State to come out without fear to cast their votes; and I ask for INEC to give more time for people to vote,” the businessman said.
