INEC fixes Saturday for outstanding Rivers Election.



The Independent National Electoral Commission has fixed Saturday for the conclusion of outstanding 2015 elections in Rivers.

The commission’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Mr. Aniedi Ikoiwak, in a statement on Tuesday said the exercise would hold at Etche and Omuma Local Government Areas.


The election, according to the statement, is to fill the Etche Constituency II seat in the House of Assembly and Etche/Omuma seat in the House of Representatives.

It said that the election would hold in 147 polling units in 19 Registration Areas in Etche and one polling unit (Umuogba Community I) in Omuma.

The commission encouraged eligible voters in the constituencies to come out enmasse to vote for their candidates.

“The commission assures the public of a credible and fair conclusion of the election in Etche Local Government Area,” the statement said.

It also said that security agencies had been contacted to provide adequate security during the exercise.

Following a court rulings that invalidated the 2015 federal and state legislative elections in the state, INEC slated March 19, 2016, for re-run polls.

Unfortunately, the exercise was marred by violence, which forced the electoral body to suspend the polls midway.

On Dec. 10, 2016, when the re-run was rescheduled, it was inconclusive in Etche and part of Omuma areas due to some irregularities, prompting the repeat which has been fixed for Saturday.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
