EFCC set to prosecute 130 INEC Officials for corruption

INEC to re-conduct elections in suspended areas

235

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has said it would re-conduct elections in all the areas where it suspended the electoral process in Rivers State due to the violence that characterised the elections in the state at the weekend.

On Sunday, INEC released the results of nine state constituencies and one federal constituency in which rerun elections were held in Rivers State, but suspended the electoral process in all other constituencies in the state where results were not announced, blaming its action on widespread violence that marred the elections.

The Director of Publicity of INEC, Mr. Nick Dazang, said the commission will fix a date for a new conduct of the elections in the areas affected by its suspension order, after due assessment of reports from its officials. He further said the commission would work with the security agencies to determine the perfect time for new polls in the areas affected by the suspension.

    Let APC forget the South South and South East for good and stop causing trouble, they should concentrate on their Hausa and Yoruba land.
