Nigeria election: Ekweremadu raises alarm over missing result sheets


The Deputy President of the Senate, Dr. Ike Ekweremadu has raised the alarm over alleged missing Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, result sheets.

The results sheets for Enugu West Senatorial District were said to be missing following last Saturday’s botched presidential and National Assembly elections.

Ekweremadu reacted in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu.

Anichukwu said that the lawmaker spoke during a town hall meeting he organised across the local governments in his senatorial district.

It said Ekweremadu spoke at Oji, council headquarters of Oji River Local Government Area.

He said result sheets remained missing, adding that he had brought it to the notice of the INEC authorities.

The lawmaker said, “Some people intended the Saturday elections for evil, but all things work together for good unto those that love God, those who repose their absolute trust in Him.

“Don’t forget that some people had earlier boasted how they would overrun us by isolating the State for a staggered election.

“You must also have read the reports that Enugu State was one of the states that didn’t receive any materials or materials were incomplete.

“They ensured that the result sheets for the entire Enugu West Senatorial District were missing or not delivered. I have lodged the complaint with the INEC authorities, but the result sheets are still missing as I speak.

“So, I urge you and indeed Nigerians to remain vigilant. Don’t despair. Don’t allow your spirits to be broken.

”We have come very far in this struggle and we are now at a point of no retreat, no surrender.

“Use the opportunity of the rescheduled dates to make your voices heard louder at the polls.

“Those who travelled to vote should, please, exercise a little more patience by staying behind or endeavouring to return this weekend to cast their votes.

“I urge every Nigerian to be where he or she will cast ballots on the rescheduled dates.”
