Owerri - Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega is under intense pressure to cancel the April 11 governorship poll in Imo State, reports The Sun.
The pressure is from powerful interest groups within the state.
The groups have compiled a number of reasons why INEC should cancel the entire governorship election and organise a fresh poll.
One of the reasons adduced by the groups is the omission of the logo of Hope Democratic Party (HDP) and the name of its governorship candidate, Munonye Ikechukwu, on the ballot paper.

Another reason why the groups want the election cancelled was the failure of card readers to work in most of the polling units in the state during the governorship election.
The commission is, however, yet to decide what to do with the complaints about the election.
