Buhari, Tinubu, Oshiomhole, Hide In Big Shame, As Wike Defeats Amaechi In His LGA

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has resumed the collation of results for the Governorship poll, in Rivers State.

On March 10, INEC had suspended all Electoral processes in the State, as a result of violence and widespread disruption of the collation of results.

The Commission later announced that the results of 17 Local Government Areas were intact, and it rescheduled collation for April 2 to April 5. INEC also scheduled supplementary election in the remaining six Local Government Areas, for April 13.

In Ikwerre Local Government Area, where Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation, hails from, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, polled 14,938 votes, while the African Action Congress, AAC, polled 5,660.

The contest is mainly between Nyesom Wike, the incumbent Governor, and the Candidate of the PDP, and Awara Biokpomabo, the Candidate of the AAC.

However, the AAC Candidate is being backed by Amaechi. On the eve of the March 9, Gubernatorial election, Amaechi had directed his supporters to vote for Biokpomabo.
