INEC set for re-run elections in Rivers State

Rivers State Resident Electoral Commission, Mr Aniedi Okoiwak,  has said that the commission was set for the second phase of the rer-un elections into some national and House of Assembly seats in the state. Okoiwak spoke, yesterday, in Port Harcourt at a meeting with the various political parties.

He said that the commission was ready for the elections but stressed that it will only go ahead when politicians shunned violence.

“Today, we are gathered to see how we can conclude the legislative re-run elections in Rivers State. We want to find out among ourselves whether or not there is a need to conduct the elections.

“If we are not prepared, it will be a mere waste of human resources, money, time and energy to continue to hold elections that would be inconclusive. We must agree that we must conclude the re-run elections,” he said.
