Fri Feb 7th, 2020 - Anambra

Mixed reactions have trailed the deregistration of 74 political parties out of the 92 parties by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that while some residents of Awka, the Anambra capital, expressed delight over the measure, others expressed dissatisfaction over the development.

Mr Emma Iloegbunam, a former member of the House of Assembly in the state, said that the measure was ripe and due in order to bring sanity in the nation’s polity.

Iloegbunam said the measure had brought the number of political parties in the country to a manageable size.
