Rivers PDP chairman petitions INEC over cancelled re-run poll in Tai LG


RIVERS State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Felix Obuah, has petitioned the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC), over moves allegedly being made to reverse the cancel­lation of the March 19 legislative re-run election in Tai Local Government Area of the state.

Obuah, in the petition signed by him and ad­dressed to INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmud Yakubu, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of des­peration and putting pressure on the commission to announce result of election it earlier cancelled.

He reminded INEC chairman of an earlier peti­tion by a concerned Rivers indigene to the House of Representatives to the effect that no election took place in Tai council on March 19.

Obuah also reminded Yakubu, of how the com­mission re-stated before the National Assembly that election would be rescheduled in Tai, a position he (Yakubu) also publicly acknowledged at a stakehold­ers’ meeting at Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.
