Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State remained on course for re-election on Tuesday evening as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) adjourned the collation of results of the March 9 governorship election in the state, which resumed on Tuesday morning amidst tight security.

As at about 5:30 p.m. when the State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Obo Effanga, announced that the exercise would continue tomorrow, results from 15 of the 23 LGAs in the state had been declared, with Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) clearing all but two. The only exceptions were Oyigbo and Akuku Toru LGAs won by his closest challenger, Engr. Biokpomabo Awara of the African Action Congress (AAC).   

Below are the results so far for the two leading contenders in the governorship race in which the federal-ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is banned by the courts due to internal wrangling:
