Election Materials: PDP Members Protest At INEC Office In Rivers


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in Rivers State staged a protest on Monday at Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters.

The protesters demanded that INEC allow a joint inspection of election materials by political parties ahead of the election petition tribunal sitting that declared the winner of the election on Saturday, March 18.

The protest was led by the Deputy Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Edison Ehie, and Samuel Nwanosike, the Chairman of the Ikwerre Local Government Area.

Nwanosike, while speaking to journalists, urged INEC to make the Certified True Copies of results available and demanded a joint inspection of materials.

“It must be a joint inspection because a man who is coming to equity must come with clean hands. Inspection must be done jointly. So that we watch each other. We have won election and the world has seen it and we will defend it with our blood.” Nwanosike said.

The protesters obstructed the two main entrances to the INEC headquarters—the waterlines and GRA areas of Aba Road—while holding signs that read, “Police have no power under the Electoral Act to declare results. We will resist it.” and “The joint inspection of materials is our right. We are ready.”
