The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has said that it will not return to Rivers until the state is conducive to conduct elections. The INEC spoke as the heavy shootings that characterized weekend’s federal and some state legislative re-run elections in Rivers, yesterday(Saturday), petered out and became a verbal warfare among stakeholders in the polls as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and All Progressives Congress, APC, traded blames over the issue. We won’t return to Rivers until there is peace – INEC

Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, INEC’s Director of Voter Education and Publicity, revealed that INEC had scheduled a meeting for tomorrow to review the situation in Rivers, adding: “I don’t want to pre-empt anything ahead of the Wednesday meeting.” Citing widespread irregularities, the commission annulled the election in eight local government areas and also suspended collation of results after declaring few results, Osaze-Uzzi also said the commission would investigate the allegations levelled against it during the election. He said the decision on when the remaining results of the election would announced would be taken at the meeting.
