INEC, security agencies tasked on credible elections in Rivers

By Jimitota Onoyume

Rivers State government has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to endeavour to replicate the success it recorded in the conduct of Anambra election in the state.

The Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Emma Okah, in a statement, yesterday, commended the electoral body for allowing the will of the people to prevail in Anambra, lauding also the role of security agencies.

His words: “While the people of Anambra State are lucky to have had a peaceful governorship election, the case of Rivers State is a sour tale, where the umpire became deeply partisan.”
