The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Monday evening established a fact-finding mission of three National Electoral Commissioners into the allegations of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the conduct of the Presidential and National Assembly elections in Rivers State.

Citing irregularities, the party has called for the election in Rivers to be cancelled.

A statement by INEC Secretary Augusta Ogakwu said the panel would advise the Commission and the Chief Electoral Commissioner/Returning Officer for the Presidential election on APC’s allegations.

The committee comprises Mrs. Thelma Iremirem, Head and supervisory National Commissioner for Rivers State, Col. M.K Hammanga, and Professor Lai Olurode.

They are expected to submit their report before the end of the collation of results of the other States and the FCT, Mrs. Ogakwu said, adding that following the consideration of the report, INEC will make its decision known.

  1. There is something caleld backup system so every vital information must be backed up. For an organisation such as this, the back up MUST run every day and back up tapes should not be in the same building. There would have been no excuse if vital information was lost.
