Electronic votes transmission: Constituents query Ekwunife over absence



Constituents of Anambra Central Senatorial District in Obosi have queried Senator Uche Ekwunife for staying away from voting on the electronic transmission of votes on the floor of the Senate on July 7, 2021.

Ekwunife of the Peoples Democratic Party was among 28 senators who stayed away from proceedings on the contentious matter.

Constituents under the aegis of Obosi Development Union on Tuesday demanded an explanation from her for her absence.

They said in the letter by the ODU Abuja Branch Chairman, Engr. Goddy Ikebuaku, that her absence angered them and portrayed her as being insensitive to the yearnings of her people.

The letter said that failing to provide a satisfactory explanation, the people of the town would regard her as one of the politicians intent on profiting from the manipulation of the electoral process.
