INEC Clarifies Why It Suspended Rivers Re-Run Election

INEC National Headquarter has clarified why it suspended the planned legislative rerun election in Rivers State slated for Saturday. 

The spokesperson of the commission, Rotimi Oyekanmi while speaking on a live television program said INEC was disturbed that its office in Bori was burnt a day after politically inciting comments.

Reports have it that Governor Nyesom Wike allegedly made inciting comment at a political rally in Etche Local Government Area, threatening some allegedly compromised INEC officials.

Oyekanmi also said the security reports from experts indicated the state was not safe for the election. 

This is likely responsible for the peace meeting called between Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and Governor Wike. INEC is ready once the politicians are ready to maintain the peace.
