A Nonagenarian, Mr Bathromy Ike, who cast his vote in Obiagu Uruagu, Ward 2, for the rerun of Nnewi South/South Ikwusigo Federal Constituency election in Anambra, reaffirmed his support for electoral process.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent, who monitored the election on Saturday in Nnewi, reports that Ike came to the polling unit with the help of daughter, Ms Ifeoma Ike.

The nonagenarian spoke with NAN.

“I am 94 years old; I am here to vote for my candidate who was leading before now; I am sure he will emerge victorious after today’s conduct.

“He won before; but they denied him his victory for a repeat of the election; as long as it is electronic voting, they can’t stop him.

“Whoever that wins must be proved by the electric system of voting; I strongly believe in the electronic process in conducting this election,” Ike said. (NAN)
