Gov Amaechi Could Not Vote
Rivers State Governor and Director General of the Buhari/Osinbanjo
Campaign Organisation Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi could not exercise
his franchise early today at his ward 8, unit 14, Ubima in Ikwerre Local
Government Area of the state due to unavailability of INEC results sheets.
The governor had at about 10:05 a.m Saturday arrived Ubima for
accreditation but was reliably informed by the polling clerk of ward
8,unit 14 that there were no result sheets at the polling unit to collate
the data of total votes cast after voting, a development which discouraged
the governor from participating in the INEC accreditation and voting
A statement signed by the governor's spokesman Mr. David Iyofor said,
governor Amaechi could not participate in the accreditation and voting
exercise because of unavailability of INEC result sheets in the polling
The statement further said, the risk of participating in the INEC
accreditation without the result sheets would pave way for election
riggers to have a field day in the manipulation of the election results.
The APC members in the area had before the governor's arrival refused to
be accredited by the polling clerk due to lack of result sheets. They
protested when the governor arrived. The governor also learnt that the
INEC result sheets were not available in all wards of Ikwerre local
government area and most polling units in the state.
Governor Amaechi complained severally to the State INEC Commissioner. As
at 6pm, the situation remained the same.
