Senator representing Rivers South East Senatorial District, Magnus Ngei Abe has accused the INEC, of training its machineries in an obscure location and with the permission Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike. He also accused INEC of discussing the Saturday rerun date with the governor wherein Wike had been the one who announced the date even before INEC made its announcement. Speaking at a press briefing in Port Harcourt, Abe said that INEC had been conducting its activities to the knowledge of Governor Nyesom Wike and the PDP. He revealed,We just received a report this evening that the INEC Collation and returning officers were being trained at the Dangreet Hotel in Umuahia in Abia state and from our knowledge of the operations of INEC, no training of officers has ever been conducted in any obscure hotel in this country.”
Training of officers is always done in the universities where the officers are being picked from and from that university they are taken straight to the state where they are to do their job.” “But to hear now that collation and returning officers were being trained at the Dangreet Hotel, Umuahia in the presence of PDP agents when our own agents were not informed or aware of it, certainly calls for concern and we believe that in this exercise, INEC should not only be fair but be seen by all Nigerians to be fair.” “We are very concerned because of the relationship that exists between some of the key actors in this whole thing and some of the key players in the INEC structure.” “We think that all Nigerians must be vigilant as far as this Rivers re-run election is concerned and that all the parties should be evenly and fairly treated.”
