In the early hours of today, Vanguard Newspaper reported that the paramount traditional ruler of Abiriba ancient kingdom; Eze Kalu Kalu Ogbu, has reacted to the destruction of offices owned by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the south east by some alleged unknown men.
The monarch said, “those who are threatened by the political awareness in south east are the ones sponsoring INEC offices’ destruction.” He added, “they know that Igbo youths are now showing interest in the 2023 presidential poll so they might have resorted to frustrating them through the destruction of facilities.”
The monarch spoke further saying, “some evil politicians might even be the masterminds of these destructions. This is because they might want to reduce the number of votes that would be produced from the South East during the forthcoming general elections.”
Lastly, King Kalu advised that those behind the destructions should stop it because it would adversely affect the people of the zone.
