The Labour Party’s strong showing in the polls on Saturday can be ascribed to the failure of the two main political parties in the nation, according to the Abia Elders Consultative Forum.

In a conversation with Vanguard, the forum’s chairman, ArchBishop Princewill Ariwodor, said it was an example of how people felt disenchanted with the mega-parties.

The massive parties have let the public down, according to Ariwodor.

They have already betrayed the public sufficiently, so they can do nothing except make a complete transition.

“Thus, the Labour Party offered the necessary change a platform.

For the first time, a large number of individuals are casting their votes.

“This shows how angry the people are about the country’s democracy being raped.

Megaparties have misused the democratic process.

And if this isn’t shown, lawmakers won’t get the message.

If their mission is changed, they are ready to protest more.

If an attempt is made to undermine their will, they are ready to express their bitterness.

In Delta, an INEC officer was killed.

In the meantime, the Delta State resident electoral commissioner, Rev. Monday Udoh-Tom, announced yesterday that an election officer had been killed following the state’s presidential and national assembly elections on Saturday.

The REC reported: “There was an attack in the Ukwani LGA, and one of our staff members was shot while carrying the election results after the election.

“The gunmen opened fire on their bus, tragically killing the INEC official while injuring others.

“Members of the National Youth Service Corps, or NYSC, were identified as the other injured ad hoc employees.

The NYSC corps members are currently receiving medical attention, but we are figuring out how to get them to an Asaba hospital, Udoh-Tom.
