Harry wondered why the release of the results had been delayed by INEC.
He added that since the Governorship and the State House of Assembly elections were conducted on the same day, their results were supposed to be released on the same day from different locations.
“Today is Thursday, April 16, 2015; good five days after the governorship and the state house of assembly elections of April 11 were conducted.
“The INEC in Akwa Ibom state has not announced the Akwa Ibom House of Assembly election results.
“We note that the two elections were conducted simultaneously on the same day.
“So how can one result be released and the other withheld till now?
“Going by INEC Guidelines, the House of Assembly results were to be released at the local government collation centres while the governorship results would then be released at the state capital.
Harry stated that as observed on April 11, there were indeed no elections in most polling units in the state.
INEC Independent Observation Team, among others had released the reports of their Observation Visits to Akwa Ibom, which said the elections in Akwa Ibom were irredeemably flawed and should be cancelled.
He said, “Only yesterday, our National Assembly members, notably Senators Aloysius Etok; Ita Enang, and Helen Esuene also spoke with one voice.
“They urged Prof. Jega to do the right thing and cancel the abracadabra conducted by Mr Austin Okojie and his friends in PDP. We totally agree with them.
“We understand that since there were no elections in Akwa Ibom state the previous Saturday, the delay in releasing the House of Assembly results is because Okojie is facing serious problems.
“He is trying to manufacture the results’’
“Okojie, in connivance with Akpabio and the PDP, had quickly concocted the governorship results, allocating over 90 per cent of the votes cast to the PDP’’, he said. (NAN)
