•ADC candidate faults election 

The Anambra Central Senatorial rerun election was marred yesterday by apathy,  as a large section of the  electorate failed to turn up.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did not take part in the rerun.

In Ebeakpu square unit 11, Amawbia ward one, Awka South LGA, Mozie Ngozi blessing, told The Nation that the rerun was a far cry from the November 18 Governorship Election in the state.

The  candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC0 in the  election, Chief Anayo Nweke, said what happened yesterday in Anambra was a charade.
