The Independent National Electoral Commission’s Rivers State office in Port Harcourt has been the scene of a nonviolent protest by some Obedients.
According to DailyPost, the protesters carried placards with various inscriptions calling for the restoration of their mandate and the judiciary’s integrity.
One of the protesters, who identified herself as a “Concerned Frustrated Nigerian Woman,” told reporters on Wednesday (today) that they are protesting in support of Obedients in Rivers State and in solidarity with those in Nasarawa State and Abuja.
She emphasized that Obedients reject both the national results for the presidential election and the results announced for Rivers State.
“What we agreed upon was not what we received. That is unacceptable to us, and we are pleading with INEC to reinstate our mandate.
“That vote was cast by us, and we need it back. We did not elect the president-elect who was announced. ” She continued.
Another protester, who also chose not to give her name, claimed that the presidential election’s outcome did not reflect transparency.
“Nigerians don’t, in my opinion, deserve this. Nigeria must be improved. Transparency is not evident in what happened. Nigeria must be at peace. We’re here to support a tranquil procedure. We demand that they uphold our constitution. “.
The protest started as INEC was distributing certificates of return to state and national election winners at the time.
No INEC representative, according to DAILY POST, spoke to the demonstrators.
