Following the alleged refusal of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Rivers state to release the certified true copies (CTC) of the just-concluded election results to the APC, the party has vowed to barricade its office along Aba Road on Monday.
The party’s guber candidate, Tonye Cole said this when he and other members of the party stormed the commission’s office on Friday.
According to him, they will barricade the office again on Monday, April 3, 2023 and will not leave until all necessary documents were handed over to them.
Cole who also said that he was not happy at all, explained that they have just 21 days from the day the election was declared to file their case in court.
“Today is not a good day; I am not happy at all. We have come to INEC to express our deep frustration over what is going on. Essentially, we are time-bound; we have 21 days from the day the election was declared to file,” he said.
“…At this point in time, the onus is on INEC as an independent regulator and administrator of elections to be fair; give us what we need so that we can go to court. Let us go to the Tribunal and present the case but if you release documents to us a day before the tribunal; what do we,” he added.
