They urged the commission to issue a certificate of return to their candidate, Obiora Okonkwo, who was recently declared winner of the PDP 2014 senatorial primaries by a federal high court in Abuja.

Also in their plea, candidates of different political parties in the rescheduled Anambra central senatorial rerun, complained that the commission did not notify them on their new development to proceed on the conduct of the senatorial rerun.

They demand the cancellation of the election to give them ample time to campaign again in the interest of justice and fair-play.
