BREAKING: INEC halts further collation of gov results in Abia, Enugu

In some parts of Abia and Enugu states, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has halted further collation of governorship election results.

Festus Okoye, National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, announced this on Monday.

It will be remembered that on Sunday, March 19, 2023, thugs stormed INEC’s office in Obingwa Local Government Area in Abia State, holding its officials hostage in connection with the collation of results from the Local Government Area.

Similarly, reports from Enugu State called for a review of the governorship election results from the two outstanding LGAs of Nsukka and Nkanu East.


According to Okoye, the entire process would be reviewed before it is concluded.

The statement read in part, “The Commission met today, 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 forthwith further collation of the Governorship election results in some parts of Abia and Enugu states.

“Consequently, the Commission hereby suspends the collation of results in Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State and the two outstanding Local Government Areas of Enugu State which are yet to be collated.

“A review will be undertaken immediately before the process is concluded.


“We appeal for the understanding and patience of voters, parties and candidates in the affected States.”
