The Deputy President of the Senate, Dr. Ike Ekweremadu has said that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, result sheets for the entire Enugu West Senatorial District were missing.
Ekweremadu disclosed this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu.
According to Anichukwu, the lawmaker spoke during a town hall meeting he organized across the local governments in his senatorial district.
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.”
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, postponed the February 16 Presidential and National Assembly elections to February 23 and March 9th respectively because of logistics.
