INEC Declares Imo Re-run Election Inconclusive 


The re-run elections in Oru East, Isiala Mbano state constituencies and Okigwe North senatorial constituency in Imo State have been declared inconclusive.

The state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Nasir Ayilara, spoke to a television station, explaining the reasons behind a result that was earlier announced by the returning officer that the APC candidate won the election.

Ayilara said that the returning officer, who later reported in the INEC office at Owerri, said he was put under duress to make the declaration against his wish.



    The REC also said the Isiala Mbano State Constituency election was inconclusive following the problem of over voting.

    Meanwhile, the APC candidate for the Owerri constituency election has been declared winner while the Imo North senatorial district election was inconclusive.

    Also in Kogi State, Isaac Alfa of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has emerged winner in the Kogi East senatorial re-run election.

    The Returning Officer, Lucky Ovwasa, said that Alfa gathered a total vote of 56,572 ahead of his opponent from the Labour Party who scored 111, 908 votes.
