Port Harcourt – The Resident Electoral Commissioner for Rivers, Mr Aneidi Ikoiwak, has announced the cancellation of legislative rerun elections in four Local Government Areas of Rivers due to irregularities.
Ikoiwak told newsmen in Port Harcourt on Saturday that the affected local governments were Gokana, Khana, Andoni and Bonny.
He said some party agents attacked INEC officials for allegedly using fake election materials in their areas.
Ikoiwak described as untrue allegations that INEC sent fake election materials to some local government areas.
“All INEC materials used for the election are genuine,” he said.
The commissioner said a new date would be announced for the rerun election in the four local government areas. (NAN)
