The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced the resumption of collation of governorship election results in Abia and Enugu States
This was contained in a statement made available to reporters in Abuja on Wednesday by Festus Okoye, the National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee.
Okoye said the reason for the suspension of collation of results in the two states on Monday was to review the conduct of the governorship elections in the states
He said the decision was reached to suspend the collation of election results in some parts of Abia and Enugu States in order to carry out a review of the collation processes in both states.
“The Commission has concluded the review. Consequently, the collation of results for the Governorship election in both Abia and Enugu States will continue today 22nd March 2023,” he said.
“The Commission appreciates the patience and understanding of the people of both states as we conclude the collation processes.”
