The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has frowned at the continued delay in releasing the governorship results of Abia and Enugu states and charges the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to accelerate their action.
He noted that further delay will question the commission's intent and credibility of the election.
The Former Anambra state governor urged the commission to FasTrack their review and quench the anxiety of Nigerians particularly citizens of the two states.
“Having appealed privately on this matter let me do it publicly, for the imperative of releasing the gubernatorial election results of Abia and Enugu state immediately.”
“I am aware that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, said they are reviewing the collation of the results in these two states. I like to urge them to accelerate their actions as the continued delay is questioning INEC's intent and the credibility of the election”
Obi expressed disappointment that Forty-Eight hours after the election was conducted results are still being delayed.
“It's disheartening that the Commission is unable to resolve whatever issues that are holding the release of the results”
“The records of elections from polling units should not be difficult to calculate if the electoral officials are committed to the integrity of the exercise, and the stipulated guidelines.”
