#2019ELECTION Declare me Rivers Gov-elect, AAC candidate Awara tells INEC

The governorship candidate of the African Action Congress in Rivers State, Biokpomabo Awara, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to declare him the governor-elect of last Saturday poll.
Biokpomabo, who made this call on Monday when he spoke with newsmen in Port Harcourt, demanded the redeployment of the State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Obo Effanga, for alleged incompetence.

He alleged that Effanga appointed card-carrying members of the Peoples Democratic Party as INEC ad hoc employees.
The AAC candidate maintained that, based on the figures made available to him by his party agents from seven local government areas, he was ahead of the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Nyesom Wike.
He alleged that INEC decided to suspend the electoral process because the Commission was aware that he was coasting to victory.
Biokpomabo pointed out that he rejected the reasons for violence, seizure of election materials by hoodlums and insecurity given by INEC for the suspension of the governorship election in the state.
He said, “The results already declared at the aforesaid local government collation centres should be accepted.
“INEC should declare me Awara Biokpomabo of the African Action Congress the winner of the 09-03-2019 governorship election in the state.

“The State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr. Obo Effanga, should be immediately redeployed for gross incompetence.
“The State REC has not been able to conclude any election in Rivers State since he took over the office. The PHALGA Constituency 111 State Assembly election is a case in point.”
