Rivers ,Bauchi APC rejects INEC decision

The All Progressives Congress has rejected the Independent National Electoral Commission’ s decision to resume collation of results in Rivers and Bauchi states ahead of supplementary elections declared in six states .

The commission had fixed March 23 for supplementary elections after declaring the governorship elections in six states as inconclusive .

The states are Bauchi , Benue , Kano , Sokoto , Adamawa and Plateau .

The governorship and House of Assembly elections in Rivers State were suspended due to violence.
However , INEC later said it would allow the collation of results in contentious Tafawa Balewa Local Government Areaof Bauchi State instead of conducting a fresh election .

It also said it would resume collation of results in Rivers State.
But the APC on Sunday said INEC was ignoring the reality on the ground .
It accused the INEC ’ s National Commissioner in charge of Information , Festus Okoye , and the Resident Electoral Commissioner in Rivers State , Obo Effanga, of conniving with the Peoples Democratic Party to skew election results against the APC.

In a statement , the APC National Publicity Secretary , Mallam Lanre Issa – Onilu , complained that the electoral process was suspended in Rivers State in fraudulent circumstances .

The statement partly read, “ It is on record that Wike , through the Rivers State Resident Electoral Commissioner , Obo Effanga, engaged the PDP card -carrying members as local government area collation officers to skew the election results in favour of Wike and the PDP.

“ Since the suspension of the electoral process in Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike and Obo Effanga have been doctoring unit results in the Rivers State Government House to favour Wike . ”

The APC accused Wike and the PDP of lying against the security agencies in order to blackmail the Federal Government .

On Benue State , the APC accused INEC officials of working with the state government officials to manipulate the elections in favour of Governor Samuel Ortom
