INEC denies frustrating Rivers APC over election documents

PORT HARCOURT – Independent National Electoral Commission in Rivers said on Thursday that it did not deny the All Progressives Congress access to documents to challenge election results at the tribunal.
Mr Roy Obijuru, the Administrative Secretary of INEC in the state, made the denial in a statement in Port Harcourt.
The statement said the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mrs Gesila Khan, had released documents to the APC on demand.
It added that INEC had received reports alleging that it had frustrated moves by the APC to collect documents for the election tribunal to challenge the election results.
He said that INEC received an application from APC on April 12 to release Certified True Copy of forms EC8C, EC8C (1) and EC40 (G) for the Governorship and House of Assembly elections for the 23 local government areas.
“Records show that representatives of APC in the state and other political parties that applied commenced the collection of the requested documents from April 16 to April 29.’’
The statement said a second application for Certified True of Forms and Electoral Documents for the Governorship and House of Assembly elections in the 23 local government areas of the state was received on April 28.

“The allegations against the commission are unfounded and calculated to smear the image of the Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state.’’ (NAN)
