“No Elections Will Be Held In Rivers State” – INEC
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it will not hold any elections in Rivers State until peace is restored.
This was disclosed by INEC’s Director of Voter Education and Publicity, Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi.
“We are not going back to the state until the atmosphere is conducive to have a violent-free election. But I don’t want to pre-empt anything ahead of the Wednesday meeting,” he said.
“This issue will be raised there; thereafter, we will issue a public statement on our findings. We will also investigate any allegation that has been raised and backed with fact,” he added.
Osaze-Uzzi had earlier announced that INEC would no longer release results due to the irregularities witnessed during the elections.
