Why We Can NOT announce AKS North to West Senatorial Election Result ~ INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Akwa Ibom State has said that it cannot declare the re
sults for the Akwa Ibom North-West District because of insecurity in the area. 

There has been suspense and tension over the election result, with both APC and the PDP accusing each other of rigging. 

Messrs Akpabio and Ekpenyong have claimed victory, even when INEC is yet to announce the election result. The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mike Igini, said on Monday in Uyo, "The results are ready, but INEC can't declare it in Uyo. 

The law says the election results must be declared at the senatorial district. The report we are getting about the security situation in Ikot Ekpene is that it is not okay for INEC to go there and announce results."
