Anambra State Deputy Governor, Dr. NKem Okeke, has explained why he displayed his ballot paper to other voters on Saturday before casting his vote.
Okeke stated that he did this to dispel the rumour making the round that he had re-defected to his former party, the All Peoples Grand Alliance (APGA).
“I had to reveal my ballot paper because there have been rumours that I had defected back to APGA, but that is not true. You just saw that I voted for my party, APC,” he said.
Okeke expressed satisfaction at the new Biometric Voters Accreditation System (BVAS) technology introduced by INEC at the governorship election in the state.
He commended the use of BVAS, saying it presented a seamless voting process.
“This is the easiest that I have had in voting experience ever; the process is unified and as you can see, I have just voted. In previous elections I have always had problem with fingerprint, but this is different, ’’ the fourth governor said.
