0

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.
