9th Speaker: PDP Okays Members To Work With APC

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, has taken an early lead in the ongoing announcement of Rivers state governorship election results.

Naija News had reported earlier that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Nigeria‘s electoral body, resumed the collation of result of the March 9 governorship election in Rivers State, south-south Nigeria.

The collation of the election result is taking place at the INEC headquarters in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.

This online news platform recalls that the process was suspended on March 10, 2019, due to the widespread disruption of elections and violence in Polling Units and Collation Centres.

The election is between two key contenders; the incumbent Governor Nyesom Wike of the PDP, and Awara Biokpomabo of the Rotimi Amaechi-backed African Action Congress (AAC).

Out of the eleven Local Government Areas (LGAs) announced by INEC as at the time of filing this report, PDP won nine while AAC two the remaining two LGAs.
