Senator-members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to release the remaining results of the March 19 rerun elections in Rivers State.

The PDP senators made the demand on Thursday, March 24, 2016, during a caucus meeting with party chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff.

The demand was contained in a communique released by the legislators after the meeting.

It reads in part:

“The Caucus calls on INEC to as a matter of urgency re-schedule the Imo North re-run Senatorial election without further delay as since the 90 days ordered by the court had since lapsed.”

“The Caucus also calls on INEC to re-schedule similar re-run elections in Anambra Central and Kogi East Senatorial Districts.”

The caucus also agreed to send a delegation to visit Rivers to congratulate the governor, Nyesom Wike, on the “electoral victories” recorded by the party.

INEC had been forced to suspend the announcement of results in Rivers due to the violence recorded during the polls.
