This is INEC’s final decision on Rivers governorship election

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s director of voter education and publicity, Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzz has announced that  it will continue collation of results in Rivers state.

Osaze-Uzzi in a Channels TV interview, explained that the commission will conclude the collation exercise in Rivers because it was not declared inconclusive.


Recall Rivers election was suspended by INEC due to electoral malpractices.
The INEC spokesman further added that the collation officer for Bauchi was replaced because of the threats to her life and that of her family.


“In case of Rivers, the commission will conclude the collation exercise in Rivers because it was not declared inconclusive.
“Initially we had penciled Bauchi down as one of the states for which there will be supplementary election, but as I speak now, quite honestly, we are not sure of that.


“The commission will on Tuesday appoint a new collation officer who will go back and conclude the collation for areas affected in the state
“Also if it is found out that there are no sufficient votes and there is need for a supplementary election, then one (an election) will be conducted.”
