The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has announced the commencement of collation of the 2023 governorship election result for Abia State.
This was contained in a statement issued by INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Barr. Festus Okoye on Wednesday.
Recall that the electoral body had called for the review of the Obingwa local government results following the controversy surrounding the outcome of the poll in the LGA, where the incumbent governor of the state comes from.
INEC in a statement on Wednesday wrote “It will be recalled that the Commission met on Monday 20th March 2023 and reviewed the conduct of the Governorship and State Assembly elections held nationwide on Saturday 18th March 2023.
“Arising from the meeting, the Commission took the decision to suspend further collation of the Governorship 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.
