#NigeriaElections2023: Anxiety As Voters Await Election Results In Rivers

There are high expectations in Port Harcourt and other parts of Rivers State as voters and residents await the outcome of the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The Independent National Electoral Commission failed to upload results from the various polling units across the 23 local government areas of the state.

As of 7 to 8 pm on Saturday, elections were still held in some polling units.

The Bi-modal Voters Accreditation machines malfunctioned in many areas, including Governor Nyesom Wike’s Ward 9, Unit 7 in Rumuiprikon, Obio/Akpor LHA of the state.

The heavy downpour and lightning during the voting hours on Saturday also led to voters seeking shelter and later returning to their polling units.

As of 12pm on Sunday, a day after the election, no result has been uploaded by INEC.

Our correspondent who had been at the INEC office along Aba Road in Port Harcourt since 9 am reports observed that as of 11 am, no result has arrived from any of the local government areas.

Newsmen and election observers have been waiting for hours at the state collation centre for the 2023 election results.

Some voters and party supporters have been eagerly awaiting the fate of their candidates as some of the results being bandied about are conflicting.
