Governor Wike Declares: PDP has won Rivers East and Rivers West Senatorial Districts


▪calls on INEC  to release the two senatorial districts results  as emanating from the polling units

▪declares that PDP has won Andoni /Opobo-Nkoro Federal Constituency and Andoni State Constituency


Rivers State Governor , has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC) to release the Rivers East  Senatorial District and Rivers West Senatorial District  untampered with, declaring  that  Peoples Democratic Party  ( PDP ) candidates  have already won both elections based on results from polling units .


Governor Wike  also called on INEC to immediately  release the results of Andoni /Opobo-Nkoro Federal Constituency and Andoni State Constituency also won by the PDP.


In an interactive session with journalists on Sunday , Governor Wike  said it has never happened  in the history  of  elections that the Rivers East Senatorial District result declaration  exceeded  24hours


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  has 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 PDP  agents access to collation  centres , so that INEC  staff can concoct results.


“It is  most unfortunate  that that they will  descend to the level of win at all costs”, he said .


The governor  reiterated  his statement that the Nigerian Army and SARS personnel were deeply involved in the violence that characterised the elections , pointing  out  that the violence claimed five lives in different parts of the State .


He said that the half hearted denial of the military evaporates in the face of overwhelming  evidence  of  their misconduct  during the polls.


“When the security  is apolitical , you have  free and fair elections .  But when the security  descends into the arena, the entire process is compromised”, the governor  noted.
