The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has been urged not to compromise the results of the House of Assembly elections in Anambra State.

Some electorates made the appeal while speaking to Voice of Nigeria in Awka South and North Local Government Areas.

Some polling units covered in Awka, the State capital, including 026 Udoka Housing Estate, 024 Kwata junction, 008 Government House, and others, was discovered that INEC officers came in between 7.45 am to 8.15 am, with little or no voters on sight.

At Amawbia ward two, polling unit 001, one of the electorate, Mrs. Chioma Ike, who commended INEC on the peaceful conduct of the election and improvement of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, (BVAS) machine, pleaded with the commission to make their votes count

She pleaded with INEC to see a reason not to compromise the election results for the good and betterment of Nigeria.

Another voter, Mr. Ikem Okeke said the election was well organized compared to the presidential election and gave INEC a plus.

When Voice of Nigeria also visited Ebenebe, Amansea at about 12noon, it observed a hitch-free conduct of the exercise and that most of the voters have already cast their votes and waiting patiently for their vote counts.

It also observed the presence of security personnels patrolling with their vehicles to ensure that violence does not erupt while voting in the areas commenced at about 8.00 am.

Speaking Mrs. Nkem Onah, who voted at Ebenebe Ward One, Polling units 003 and Mr. Ikenga Chikwe, at Okeukwa Healthcare Ward One Amansea Polling Unit 011 expressed worry on the low turnout of electorate; but described the process as free and fair.

However, Voice of Nigeria noticed that INEC staff made it early at Fegge, Awada, all in Onitsha. Early Arrival of INEC staff was also recorded in Nnewi north and south polling units.
