Hear Iwuanyanwu; “Again, we have a sitting governor, a two times senator for Orlu zone. One way to boost his chances of reelection was to ensure that our people came out to register en masse.

“We the Orlu zone caucus took it upon ourselves to make sure that we got all our constituents to register. That in a nutshell is what has frustrated Ugochinyere and his sponsors.

Adding his voice, the member for Ideato North state constituency, Hon. Innocent Arthur Egwim, said the outburst of Ugochinyere did not come to him as a surprise, being that he hails from his constituency.
