Rivers State election INEC Jega APC

INEC has rejected the request by APC to cancel the Rivers State election result for manipulation reasons given by the party. The chairman of Independent National Electoral Commision(INEC), Prof Jega made it known in Abuja. He claimed this is as a result of the fact that there was no credible evidence gathered that support the accusation by the party. 

Read Mr Jega's statements below;

"Sunday morning, I received a petition from APC demanding for the cancellation & rescheduling of elections"

"I circulated this memo to the Commission. We reviewed it and set up a 3 man Committee to Rivers & returned this morning with their observations"

"There were a number of points as to why the Commission should cancel/reschedule elections:
1)No elections
2)No result sheets
3)Substitution of officials"

"We cannot establish any cancellation or substitution of results and we sent a list of collation officers to the state"

"Officials fail to show up to work for several reasons and it is up to the REC to substitute from the pool of officials they have"

"We do not believe the allegations are substantial enough to require the cancellation/rescheduling of the elections in Rivers"

"The decison of the Commission is that we will take the results of the elections in Rivers state"

"We have taken measures to make sure that reoccurrences do not occur in the future"
