INEC REC explains why Elections will be Cancelled

The Akwa Ibom Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mike Igini, has said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will cancel polls, in units where ballot boxes were snatched in the state.

Igini stated this while addressing newsmen, on the conduct of the Presidential and National Assembly elections in Akwa Ibom on Saturday.

“We are able to deliver ballot papers and result sheets in various polling units apart from few that have one challenge or the other.

“What I can tell you emphatically is that there is no election, where there is snatching of ballot papers or result sheets are taken to private homes or somewhere to thumb print.

“We will not accept it, those things are not going to work here and we are not going to accept it.

Those areas will stand as cancelled and we will take them as non events,” Igini said.

He, however, said that the conduct of the elections was not completely 100 per cent, adding that elections did not start accordingly in few centres in the state due to some challenges.

Igini promised that INEC had learned lessons and will improve during the governorship elections.

INEC delists APC candidates in Cross River

The Independent National Electoral Commission has directed its Resident Electoral Commissioner in Cross River to remove the names of all candidates of All Progressives Congress from the ballot for the general elections.

The REC, Dr Frankland Briyai disclosed this to newsmen on Friday in Calabar.

According to him, the decision is in compliance with a Federal High Court order which recognises the Etim John-led State Executive Council of the party.

The court consequently ordered the Commission to recognise only candidates from the John-led State Executive Council.

However, INEC directed that the names and logo of the party should be retained, pending when the National Working Committee of APC would submit the names of candidates from the Etim John-led executive.

The letter which was signed by Mrs Rose Anthony, Secretary to the Commission, also directed the REC to update its record in respect of the list of candidates earlier sent to him.

The party in the state is factionalised between those loyal to John Ochalla and Etim John.
