International Observers request for Cancellation of Rivers State Governorship & House of Assembly Results!
According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, International election observers have called for the cancellation of the Governorship and House of Assembly elections in Rivers State.
Humphrey Bekaren, who is the leader of the African Center for Leadership Strategies and Development, spoke on behalf of the observers in Port Harcourt. He stated that the observers were shocked that INEC disregarded the widely reported violent irregularities to begin the process of declaring results in the state.
“We request all lovers of democracy to join us in calling for the outright cancellation of the phony election. Unless this is done, we would have sown the seed that could eventually grow into providing a shade of fear and death over us,’’ he said.
“What we saw did not meet international standard of electioneering, not even the ones set by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC,’’ he said.
