Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has decried the failure of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to release outstanding results of state and federal constituencies where rerun elections were concluded on March 19, 2016.
Speaking yesterday when he received the Ogbakor Ikwerre United States and Canada branch at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Governor Wike regretted that the continued delay in the release of the results bred unnecessary suspicion and conflict.
He said what transpired on March 19 was the will of the people of the state to resist any form of rigging and manipulation of the electoral process.
The governor noted: “We believe that INEC should no longer delay the release of the results. The more they delay, the more there is suspicion and the tendency for crisis.”
On the issue of security, the governor reiterated that the reports of events in the state were misleading, noting that across the country, all states had security challenges but the case of Rivers State was being manipulated by political groups in the pursuit of ungodly goals.
He said: “All the multinationals are working peacefully in the state; all the indigenous companies are also around contributing their quota to the state.”
On projects execution, the governor assured that his administration would execute projects that would enhance the living standard of the people.
He added that projects relevant to the wellbeing of the people which were abandoned by the previous administration would be completed.
Earlier, President of Ogbakor Ikwerre, United States and Canada, Dr Fortune Woluwo congratulated the governor on his victory at the polls and at the Supreme Court.
Woluwo called on INEC to release outstanding results of the elections.
