The Greater Together Campaign Organisationwishes to condemn unequivocally the unashamed re-writing of results of the April 11 Governorship/House of Assembly elections going on simultaneously at the Port Harcourt private residences of Dr. Peter Odili, a former Governor of Rivers State, and Mr. Tom Orage just as Mr. Timothy Nsirim, a former Chairman of Obio/Akpor is similarly doing at St. Andrew’s School, Mile One, Diobu, Port Harcourt in criminal conjunction with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and security operatives. Odili and Orage have surrendered their houses to members of PDP to do massive thumb-printing even after elections have come to a close.

Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, GTCO’s Director of Communications, in a statement on Saturday, said the organisation will not accept any subversion of the people’s will as Dr. Odili, Orage and Nsirim have shown. “We agree with Rivers people that this time, their votes will be counted and their votes will count. Never again will the impudence of March 28thbe repeated.

“GTCO calls on the Chairman of INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega, to beam the Commission’s searchlight on Rivers State and ensure that the people’s voices are not silenced”, the statement said.
