A group, the Greater Together Campaign Organisation (GTCO) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State last night alleged that “unashamed” re-writing of results of the April 11 Governorship/House of Assembly elections was going on simultaneously at the Port Harcourt private residences of Dr. Peter Odili, a former Governor of Rivers State, and Mr. Tom Orage.

GTCO further alleged that Mr. Timothy Nsirim, a former Chairman of Obio/Akpor was similarly doing same at St. Andrew’s School, Mile One, Diobu, Port Harcourt in conjunction with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and security operatives.

“Odili and Orage have surrendered their houses to members of PDP to do massive thumb-printing even after elections have come to a close.”

Director of Communications, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, in a statement, said the organisation would not accept any subversion of the people’s will as Dr. Odili, Orage and Nsirim have shown.

“We agree with Rivers people that this time, their votes will be counted and their votes will count. Never again will the impudence of March 28th be repeated,” the statement said.

“GTCO calls on the Chairman of INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega, to beam the Commission’s searchlight on Rivers State and ensure that the people’s voices are not silenced,” it added.
