The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) late Sunday delayed the victory party of incumbent Delta Satte Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, when it announced the suspension of the governorship election results in the state at the collation centre in Asaba, the state capital, till today, March 11, 2019.
With the results of 18 local government areas already announced and seven more to go, Okowa, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is leading in 17 local government areas.
His closest opponent, Great Ogboru, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has won only one local government area.
During the announcement of the results, APC representative, Mr. Turner Ogboru, raised some objections on the alleged disparity in the figures for the number of accredited voters for most of the local government areas declared.
But the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Cyril Omorogbe, said the commission had noted the observations made and called on all parties with complaints to direct their grievances to the appropriate quarters.
