The Independent National Electoral Commssion, INEC, has said that it will not return to Rivers until the state is conducive to conduct elections.
INEC spoke as the heavy shootings that characterised weekend’s federal and some state legislative re-run elections in Rivers, yesterday, petered out and became a verbal warfare among stakeholders in the polls as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and All Progressives Congress, APC, traded blames over the issue.
INEC’s Director of Voter Education and Publicity, Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, revealed that INEC had scheduled a meeting for tomorrow to review the situation in Rivers.
In an interview with Newsmen in Abuja, Mr. Osaze-Uzzi also said the commission would investigate the allegations levelled against it during the election.
He said the decision on when the remaining results of the election will be announced would be taken at the meeting.
Citing widespread irregularities, the commission annulled the election in eight local government areas and also suspended collation of results after declaring few results.
