INEC Denies Giving Voters’ Register to RSIEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Rivers State has denied releasing voters’ register to the Rivers State Independent National Electoral Commission (RSIEC) for the conduct of local government elections on May 23.

RSIEC had earlier told newsmen that it had received INEC’s official voters’ register for the conduct of the election. Read it HERE

INEC in a statement signed by its secretary, Roy Obijiri, said it did not give the register to RSIEC. He said the delay in the releasing of the register was due to impending court processes over the matter in a federal high court in Port Harcourt.

The statement by INEC also said the court adjourned the matter and admonished all parties to maintain status quo pending the determination of the appeal and the substantive suit.
