The Coalition of Governorship Candidates and Party Chairmen (CGCPC) in
Rivers State has given the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) 24 hours to discharge the Certified True Copies (CTCs) of the March 9 governorship and House of Assembly race results.
An announcement by the Chairman, Warigbani Zebulun and Secretary Chibuzor Anele, said influencing the CTCs accessible would empower resistance pioneers to have a view for thought and assurance.
The statement reads: “We have remained law abiding despite the unlawful collation and announcement of results, in the absence of agents of opposition parties because INEC and the police denied them access into the collation centre.
“Several other complaints, including court actions, were ignored by INEC during the collation. This could plunge the state into crisis, but we sacrificially avoided that, even when fake results were declared by INEC’s fact-finding committee.
“The leadership of INEC at the state and national levels should do the needful to avoid unpleasant actions that can plunge the state into crisis.
“We are compelled to accuse INEC of an unholy alliance with Governor Nyesom Wike and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), while depriving many governorship candidates and opposition parties of equal opportunities, rights and privileges.”
CGCPC also accused INEC of dancing to the drumbeats of PDP, saying its members would rise against such moves at the expiration of the ultimatum.
