Nothing Is Greater Than The Peace And Security Of Wakrike—Dame Maureen Tamuno

The Dame Maureen Tamuno Campaign Organization wishes to commend the people and respected electorates of Okrika-Ogu/Bolo Federal Constituency for their peaceful conduct during the March 19, 2016 rerun election.

Although the entire election in the constituency was relatively peaceful, it is pertinent to state that officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were largely compromised. They deliberately invalidated votes and cancelled units where Dame Maureen Tamuno of the All Progressives Congress (APC) clearly won just to favour the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Most of those units affected by INEC's compromised acts were done with the connivance of PDP agents to favour their candidate.

This obnoxious compromise was however resisted by voters in Ward 6, Okrika LGA who came out in their large numbers and cast their votes void of irregularities.

We therefore call on INEC to collate and record the results from Okrika Ward 6, and declare APC candidate, Dame Maureen Tamuno, winner and elected for the Okrika-Ogu/Bolo Federal Constituency.

In other units, INEC officials deliberately voided votes to reduce Dame Tamuno's chances. Despite this, our candidate refused to be provoked understanding that the peace of Wakrike is more important than any other consideration.

Dame Maureen Tamuno therefore wishes to call on all her supporters and good people of the constituency to remain calm and await the final outcome.

Our victory is sure and cannot be robbed.
