Wike Calls on INEC to Release Results of Rerun Elections in Rivers

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to declare results of the rerun elections conducted in the state last weekend.
He said he was surprised that till now the INEC has still not released the results that have so far been collated in the state.
Wike, who spoke Tuesday when the Federated Correspondents Chapel of Nigerian Union of Journalists, in Rivers State paid him a courtesy visit in Government House, Port Harcourt, said it was shocking that the electoral body was still holding back several results already collated.
The Governor noted that the commission lacked powers to cancel results that have been announced at the various local government collation centres.
“Nigeria of today is not Nigeria of yesterday. People have becomed more aware”, he said.
The Governor said the plan to impeach him through the state House of Assembly had failed, stressing that his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, was firmly on ground in the state.
“Part of the plan was to impeach me. Has the impeachment not died, it has died natural death”, he noted.
