Labour Party wants INEC to cancel elections in parts of Rivers

The National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cancel the presidential and national assembly elections held on Saturday in Obio/Akpor, Khana, Eleme, Obigbo, Rumukoro areas of Rivers State.

In a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja, Abure expressed shock at the revelations emanating from Rivers State, alleging that thugs invaded various polling units and collation centres and made away with election materials, including result sheets.

Abure further alleged that the thugs manipulated the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines and uploaded fake results into the central portal. According to him, the leadership of the Labour Party took note of incidents in places like Obio/Akpor, Khana, Eleme, Obigbo, Rumukoro, and several other areas where the Labour Party was leading with wide margins.

The LP chairman alleged that INEC’s staff were intimidated by these thugs in connivance with military personnel and police officers who were deployed to protect them. He called for INEC to investigate these atrocities against Nigerian voters by the political class and cancel all unverified and manipulated results in the affected areas.

Abure said, “We demand that INEC investigate these atrocities against Nigerian voters by the political class. We are therefore asking that INEC should rise to the occasion and cancel all the unverified and manipulated results arising from the presidential and national assembly elections in parts of Rivers State, particularly in places like Obio/Akpor, Khana, Eleme, Obigbo, and Rumukoro amongst others.’’
