The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to end its “manipulative schemes” and immediately declare the result of the March 9, 2019 Rivers state governorship election.
A statement issued by the party’s national spokesman, Kola Ologbodiyan in Abuja on Sunday said the party rejects the decision by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to suspend the electoral process in the state after results had been collated.
The PDP alleged that INEC’s move was a premeditated plan by the APC-led Federal Government to use the instrument of INEC and security agencies to truncate the wishes of the Rivers people as already delivered at the polling units.
INEC had earlier on Sunday suspended electoral processes in Rivers state as a result of violence.
The electoral body said that it had established a fact-finding committee to access the situation and report back in 48 hours.
