Governor Amaechi - "Elections Must Be Cancelled In Rivers State" ..
In an exclusive interview with SaharaTV, Rivers
State Governor Rotimi Amaechi says that he believes that today’s
presidential elections held in River State were irreparably compromised,
and the results must be cancelled.
All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, alleges that interference on
the party of the ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has
adversely influenced the result of the contest. Claiming the PDP is
working with officials and security agents to rig the contest by
withholding result sheets, Amaechi says the results of the election
today in Rivers cannot be trusted.
[are] arresting everyone that is arrestable, the police carrying ballot
boxes, they are also aiding PDP supporters,” Amaechi said.
He added all
the election equipment and materials, especially result sheets, are in
PDP agent hands. "I couldn’t vote. In the country, we’re doing very
well. In Rivers State, we discovered that all the SPOs (supervising
presiding officers) have stolen all the result sheets and disappeared.
So we said that there will be no election until we see the result
claims he was accompanied by members of the press, for purposes of
documenting the developments there. "I went with cameramen. I went with
Channels, AIT and NTA. They did not see anywhere that we went to that
you could identify that there were result sheets."
his disappointment with INEC’s management of the electoral process in
Rivers State, Amaechi also listed the names of officials he claims are
working for the PDP, and how their affiliations ultimately jeopardize
the contest. "Don’t forget that the INEC commissioner here was employed
by the president,” he said. “So as far as she’s concerned, she says that
there was an election and that all the result sheets are in the field."
