RIVERS: Serious Traffic Gridlock As Rivers PDP Members Storm INEC Office On Aba Road – Demands Inspection Of Election Results

Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State on Monday April 3, protested at the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to demand the joint inspection of election results and the Certified True Copies of result sheets for the just-concluded 2023 general elections. 

The protest was led by PDP leader and Chairman of Ikwerre LGA Dr. Samuel Nwanosike and the Deputy Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Edison Ehie.  Protesters blocked both the waterlines and GRA areas of Aba road, the two major access points to the INEC head office.

The protest which led to  heavy traffic had commuters stocked on  the road as no car was able to drive through the limited space.

Though the party won the governorship and State Assembly elections, the Deputy Speaker of the Assembly who jointly led the protest, demanded that INEC grant the party a joint inspection of the materials used in conducting the March 18 elections.

The protesters believed that their demand which is ahead of the expected visit of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Candidate, Tonye Cole to the INEC office will introduce the level of transparency needed to forestall unnecessary litigations and arguments.

Stating from the write-ups on the placards carried by the protesters, the PDP is demanding for a for joint inspection of materials and  request that  INEC produces the  Certified True Copies of results.

The arrival of security operators who arrived the scene of protest shot on the air to scare protesters.
