The Labour Party (LP) in Delta State has purchased CCTV cameras ahead of Saturday’s governorship and the State House of Assembly elections.
The Diaspora Deltans for Ogboru (DDO) in partnership with The Campaign Against Political Correctness (CAPC) a Non-Governmental Organization purchased 3,500 sets of Mini CCTV cameras from Henry’s Electronics Limited to be installed at various polling units in Delta State to help fight against electoral fraud.
Great Ovedje Ogboru, the party’s governorship candidate said there are ‘ghost’ votes from the riverine areas of the state which the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have always used to rig election in their favour.
According to him, with the cameras being mounted in hidden positions of each of the polling units, electoral fraud will be checked.
The cameras were mounted by Datapoint Microsystems Limited at various polling stations across the state after the March 28 presidential elections, which are being monitored from various secret situation rooms in the heart of Warri and in various local government areas of Delta state.
The cameras have already been mounted in hidden locations of various polling centres across the state. We were able to visit one of the secret situation rooms of the Labour Party in Warri city, Delta state, where various polling stations were monitored by wide LCD screens and computers and Mobile phones.
This would be Ogboru’s fourth attempt at Delta’s governorship.
