JUST IN: Election Results May Be Cancelled In Rivers State

Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi has said that he believes that today’s presidential elections held in the State were irreparably compromised, and the results must be cancelled.

According to Sahara Reporters, Amaechi, All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, alleges that interference on the party of the ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has adversely influenced the result of the contest. Claiming the PDP is working with officials and security agents to rig the contest by withholding result sheets, Amaechi says the results of the election today in Rivers cannot be trusted.

“The police [are] arresting everyone that is arrestable, the police carrying ballot boxes, they are also aiding PDP supporters,” Amaechi said.

He added all the election equipment and materials, especially result sheets, are in PDP agent hands. “I couldn’t vote. In the country, we’re doing very well. In Rivers State, we discovered that all the SPOs (supervising presiding officers) have stolen all the result sheets and disappeared. So we said that there will be no election until we see the result sheets.”

Amaechi claims he was accompanied by members of the press, for purposes of documenting the developments there. “I went with cameramen. I went with Channels, AIT and NTA. They did not see anywhere that we went to that you could identify that there were result sheets.”

Expressing his disappointment with INEC’s management of the electoral process in Rivers State, Amaechi also listed the names of officials he claims are working for the PDP, and how their affiliations ultimately jeopardize the contest. “Don’t forget that the INEC commissioner here was employed by the president,” he said. “So as far as she’s concerned, she says that there was an election and that all the result sheets are in the field.”

The two-term governor stated that voters in Rivers State should be calm, and not resort to violence. His statement comes as reports of violence grow, according to conversations with representatives from the CLEEN Foundation.

At the time of this report, yet another death was reported at a ward in Ogale, Eleme local government area in Rivers State. This joins a string of violent and criminal incidences that have characterized Election Day in the state.

  • Lol! Amaechi is really disrupting GEJ rigging plan. Come to think of it, if result sheet was not there, how did they intend writing the result? PDP…PDP…PDP!

  • I agree with him,because Amaechi is saying the truth because he go there with the press and they did not see the result sheet

  • Please let’s be objective here, if there are no result sheets, how would the results be collated?
    Let peace reign. God bless Nigeria,

  • Nigerian especially ndi Igbo respectively, can any body ever reject his or her brother,father,uncle for an outsider all bcus he is not doing well ????.am sure ur answer is NO.So no matter how GEJ do we prefer him to any other person .We want him there and he is going to be there by almighty God’s grace young ugo cares

    • Dont mind the fools,as far as I know no election in Rivers.We know what Mama peace and Ateke can do and they have done it,how can somebody turns himself to Inec office?

  • What is the meaning of democracy? It should be free and fair and transparent, i was in a ward and also i didn’t see result sheets. May God help Nigeria.

  • i’m student i study in in south south. i knew well about nigerians the hausa, yoruba & igbo. its wrong to say buhari is an outsider,to consider him as a religion candidate. at this junction nigerians need a strong man who can keep nigeria strong irrespective of tribe, religion and region. i hope those idiots who can not distinguish b/w fool and wise thinker calling amaechi fool should understand failure and re think again.

  • Amechi is a brainliant man what he said was correct, show us the result sheet I will vote. We should be careful of this rigging plan it will back fire because everybody eyes is open

  • My brothers non of this politicians worth the blood of any Nigerian, their children are abroad schooling, enjoying, in a secured country, but were are we, we are in Nigeria the only country me and you can call our own, let me tell you if anything happens today, they will take the nest available flight and run but me and you will have no place to go, lets pray for peace.

  • My brothers this is not time for us to abuse one another, this is time for us to pray for peace, unity and progress in Nigeria, no mater were you come from (North, South, East and West) let us Pray to God Almighty like in the time of Jonah when the ship was about to sink, let us call Jesus to match into Nigeria, in this Palm Sunday to bring peace into Nigeria

  • But come to think about this, Amaechi was suppose to be in his ward voting. The INEC, security officials and elections observers were the only people permitted to move from place to place. No other governor has reported that he went from a polling boot to another. Let other observers report what they saw. Reports from PH yesterday were all that conducts were peaceful.

  • you fools, even your gej knows he can’t win this election even if you manipulate river’s results ten times, try and check results from other states of the federation or is he going to rule over rivers alone. ha ha ha. federal republic of rivers. let him just handover from OTUOKE he need not coming back to Abuja. bye bye for jati jati.

  • U see what people don’t know much about election is that there are many things to take into account not just saying I didn’t see result sheet if I may ask is result sheet the most important thing to be asking for when your are not collation officer during the conduct of elections such as this? Instead of taken into account the number of registered voters for ur PU, nos of accredited voters then after voting the no. of votes cast cos with this u would knw if any think went wrong. And again even before entering any result into the result sheets the votes must have been sorted out and counted so I don’t see any reason to start a fight here.

  • All we need do is to continuing praying for peace and unity in our nation and for a God fearing leader……let come to think of it what are we the youth doing?this people are using we against each other bcs they no dat once dere is no unity among us,we won’t be able to be focus…LET WE THE YOUTH COME OUT TO TAKE OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE

  • wherethre ijew or nt all of us we r nigeria. so amechi can daside who he wl surport. bcs i was there when people of river state ar vote open. telling each other dat u shuld vote pdp. which is nt supost 2 be happen. pdp wayo

  • well, I served as an inec ad hoc staff in 2011 general lections and I still remembered we were told to guide d result sheet with our lives and never to bring it out until point of recording d result in which u then show it everyone. infact, it was brought to us just after accreditation. i therefore believe d inec staff are not under any obligations to show him. anyone can hijack it. and dis is not enough to cancel an election until it is otherwise proven. this is my humble opinion.

  • Let no one abuse Amaechi, he is actively pushing the motion of a No-rigging election in a free and fair environment.
    If GEJ wins, let it be glaring to silence the opposition party. If you are in his shoe, you could do worse.
    Our problem in this country is a foolish act of Voting because someone is from our tribe. It will kill us more if we think that way.

  • No matter what may happen, the winner must surely emerge…lets not cause trouble in this country…BIKO KWANU!

  • Busayo just as like your name… U are full of shit. Hw can u be abusing the president like that? U infidel y nt just drop a comment n leave

  • Busayo just like your name… U are full of shit. Hw can u be abusing the president like that? U infidel y nt just drop a comment n leave

  • How do I explain the action of the Governor of River State. Please explain to me, should the inec show every voter their sensitive materials or him alone because he the Governor or because he Ameachi, did he also ask to see ballot papers to see what colour they were. I don’t like this know it all, it makes me sick. By the way he is an interested party in the election the campaign manager of a party no the agent of the party for this very election why was he going from polling stations. Perhaps he would have made a state broadcast asking all of us to to our polling units to request for result sheets. Who knows what the real agenda was, may God help us. Please don’t make us suspect the air we breath. Rivers people let’s be wise. The governors family is not in his village.

This took place in Rumuokoro port harcourt rivers state
