The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus of the Senate has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately release the outstanding results in the Rivers State re-run elections particularly results that were collated from polling units, wards, Local Government Areas in their possession.

This was part of the resolutions reached at the PDP Senate Caucus meeting held on Thursday with the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff in attendance.

In a communiqué signed by the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, the caucus agreed to send a delegation to visit Rivers State and congratulate the Governor, Barrister Nyesom Wike on the electoral victories and commiserate with the families of people who had lost their loved ones in the re-run elections in Rivers State, particularly the youth corps member who was slain in the imbroglio.

The PDP Senators condemned in totality the acts of violence perpetrated during the re-run elections in Rivers State and called on President Muhammadu Buhari to support the commission of enquiry investigating the killings in the Rivers re-run elections with a view to bringing the perpetrators to justice.

According to the communiqué, “the Caucus calls on INEC to as a matter of urgency re-schedule the imo North re-run Senatorial election without further delay as since the 90 days ordered by the court had since lapsed.

“The Caucus also calls on INEC to re-schedule similar re-run elections in Anambra Central and Kogi East Senatorial Districts,” the communiqué said.

The PDP Senators said they had reviewed the decision of the National Executive Council of the party and agreed that the timetable of the Party Congresses and National Convention remained sacrosanct.
