The governor who spoke Tuesday when the Federated Correspondents Chapel of Nigerian Union of Journalists, in Rivers state paid him a courtesy visit in Government House, Port Harcourt said it was shocking that the electoral body was still holding back several results already collated and announced at the various collation centres. Continuing, the governor said the commission lacked powers to cancel results that have been announced at the various local government collation centres, “Does INEC have powers to cancel results that have been collated, announced at local government areas. You have no power. You know that a particular party has lost. They came with mights.Tell INEC to release results declared. You have announced that PDP won. What are you doing with them . Nigeria of today is not Nigeria of yesterday. People have becomed more aware.”, he said. The governor said the plan to impeach him through the state House of Assembly had failed, stressing that his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, was firmly on ground in the state. The governor said on the day of the election his opponents went about with intimidating military presence but his party relied on the people to coast to victory. . “Part of the plan was to impeach me. Has the impeachment not died, it has died natural death. You planned to impeach me if you win all the seats in the House, what has happened now. Has the impeachment not died. Come and impeach me na.
