ONITSHA—A chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Mr. Okoli Akirika, on Monday, accused the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, of bias in the delay to conduct  the Anambra Central senatorial zone election.

Akirika, a former Commissioner for Lands and state secretary of the party, while addressing newsmen on the issue, said the people of the zone had suffered unquantifiable losses due to non- representation in the national assembly.

“Apart from depriving the constituents of the right to representation in the national assembly, it is also occasioning substantial and irredeemable losses to the people.
