Inconclusive Elections: Reps urge INEC not to subvert will of Nigerians 2

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been urged not to weaken the will of Nigerians by declaring elections inconclusive.

The House of Representatives made this call while adopting a motion of urgent national Importance brought before it by Sunday Karimi (PDP Kogi) at the plenary on Wednesday.

INEC had declared elections in six states inconclusive following cancellation of results in some polling units in the states.

March 23 was fixed by the commission for supplementary elections in the states, which are Benue, Sokoto, Plateau, Adamawa, Kano and Bauchi states.

The lawmakers urged the commission to adhere to the Nigerian constitution by allowing aggrieved parties to proceed to relevant tribunals in order to ensure peace, security and promote the credibility of the process.
