The primary election held by Basil Ejidike’s Led Faction for Nnewi North, Nnewi South and Ekwusigo Federal Constituency has ended up in crisis.
Daily News Reporters gathered that a serving member of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Hon Smart Okafor who is an aspirant for the House of Representatives seat came into the venue of the primary with doctored delegates list and displaced the main delegate.
It was observed that Hon Smart Okafor brought in foreign elements into the primary to cast votes.
This made the delegates and his co-aspirant, Rt Hon. Rita Maduagwu to be angry and desert the venue of the primary.
An angry delegate who preferred to be anonymous disclosed that Hon Smart brought in students from the Federal Polytechnic Oko to stand in as delegates. As it stands now, the primary is inconclusive with Hon Smart flying doctored results around.
Meanwhile, the legally recognized State Working Committe which is led by Emeka Ibe, held a peaceful primary and Hon. Paul Ezeobi was elected the candidate.
