INEC Fixes 20th March For Completion Of Rivers Governorship Election by brightec(m): 1:43am On Mar 16
INEC FIXES WEDNESDAY 20TH FOR COMPLETION OF POLLS IN 6 LGAs

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed Wednesday, March 20, 2019 for the completion of polls in six local government areas of Rivers State where elections did not hold during March 9 gubernatorial and state house of assembly elections even as it frowned at the roles played by some soldiers and armed gangs in trying to thwart the will of the people as expressed in the governorship and state assembly election in the state.

The decision followed the report of the fact-finding committee set by the Commission to probe the disruption of the collation of results in areas of the state.

The Commission, in a statement on Friday night, said that collated results in 17 local government areas of Rivers state are safe in the custody of INEC while results of 21 out 32 state constituencies of the state had been declared prior to the suspension of the process by INEC.

It said it will proceed with the collation of the remaining results while the detailed timeline for completion of the election on Wednesday 20 would soon be released. The statement issued by Barrister Festus Okoye read:

“On the 10th of March 2019, the Commission suspended all electoral processes in Rivers State having determined that there was widespread disruption of collation of results of the elections conducted on the 9th day of March 2019. Subsequently, the Commission set up a Fact-Finding Committee to assess the situation and report back within 48 hours.

“The Commission met on the 15m day of March 2019 and considered the report of the Committee and established the following:

“That the Governorship and State Assembly elections took place in most of the polling units and results were announced.

“That the results from 17 Local Governments out of 23 are available and are in the Commission’s custody.

“That the Declaration and Returns for 21 State Constituencies out of 32 were made prior to the suspension.

“That collation centres were invaded by some soldiers and armed gangs resulting in the intimidation and unlawful arrest of election officials thereby disrupting the collation process.

“Consequent upon the foregoing, the Commission:

“Expresses its displeasure with the role played by some soldiers and armed gangs in Rivers State disrupting the collation process and attempting to subvert the will of the people.

“INEC is committed to expeditious completion of the collation process where results of the elections have been announced.

“Will engage the security agencies at the national level and the lnter-Agency Consultative Committee at the State level to demand neutrality and professionalism of security personnel in order to secure a peaceful environment for the completion of the elections.
“Will also engage with key stakeholders in Rivers State with a view to ensuring a smooth and peaceful completion of the process.

“Will issue detailed timelines and activities for the completion of the election on Wednesday, March 20th, 2019."

The stupidity of amaechi is extraordinary every day, how will amechi think of using an unknown party called AAC to unseat PDP and wike in rivers state, this is not only difficult but extremely impossible,

What amechi is doing in rivers state is like a driver putting his vehicle in reverse gear and still expect it to move forward, amechi is an irredeemable bastardized fool.

grin Congratulations ahead to Governor Wike... The truth is that Rivers state government house can only be led by one person at a time.. And the overseer of Omega Power Ministries (OPM) has already handed over the key of the government house to Governor Wike.. So there's no how Amaechi could change what has been already completed spiritually..
Amaechi should save himself more disgrace and retire...
