The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, has called on INEC to release the results of Rivers East Senatorial District and Rivers West Senatorial District without tampering with it.
Wike declared that the candidates of the PDP had already won both elections based on results from polling units.
The governor also called on INEC to immediately release the results of Andoni/Opobo-Nkoro Federal Constituency and Andoni State Constituency, which he claimed the PDP had won.
Wike, who spoke in an interactive session with journalists on Sunday, said it had never happened in the history of elections that the Rivers East Senatorial District result declaration exceeded 24 hours.
According to him, the result of Rivers East has been held down by the plots of INEC, the Army and the Police to manipulate the results of Emohua and Ikwerre Local Government Areas for the purpose of concocting the senatorial results in favour of the APC .
He said, “As I speak with you, they are doing everything possible to rewrite the result of Emohua Local Government Area to ensure that the APC wins”.
The governor said that since the conclusion of voting, INEC had been playing pranks, moving collation back and forth from Emohua to Port Harcourt to create room for rigging.
“For now, all the collation officers have refused to be compelled to declare false results. As such, the collation officers have left and INEC has resorted to using her internal staff for the collation of results.
“Release Rivers East Senatorial District where Senator George Sekibo has won clearly. Release Rivers West Senatorial District where Senator Osinakachukwu Ideozu has won clearly.
INEC should release Andoni/ Opobo-Nkoro Federal Constituency where Abiante has won and Andoni State Constituency where Ikunyi Ibani has won clearly,” he said.
He described as unfortunate the deliberate use of the Nigerian Army to deny the PDP agents access to collation centres so that INEC staff could concoct results.
