Against the insinuation that the edo state result may be declared inconclusive, the national chairman of the Edo state campaign council of the People’s Democratic Party and Rivers state Governor, Nyesome Wike on Saturday warned the independent National Electoral Commission against such idea as it will not paint the commission in a good light, saying INEC must keep to its promise of a transparent process.
Wike made this disclose during an interview with channels’ television in situation room in Edo state and that which was monitored by Urban Express News Correspondent noted that the collation of results are most critical stage, urged security personnel to prevent breaches.
His word: The people of Edo state should defend their votes up to collation centres, we have results from about 2,000 polling units from the various wards and from the intelligence we have gathered as I believes that INEC will keep to that promise of being independent
But we are getting a bit worried that INEC said they have 700 unit results which is not correct and that calls for concern. We don’t believe that INEC has only 700. It is more than 2,000 that we have.
“Again, as we speak, they ought to have moved to the ward collation centres before they move to the local government collation centres. But we cannot find the security personnel around the ward collation centres and that gives us concern.
“Why is it that the security personnel are not at the ward collation centres? So, I urge the Inspector-General of Police to move his men to the ward collation centres.
