Naija News reports that the collation of the election result is taking place at the INEC headquarters in Port Harcourt.

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 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Awara Biokpomabo of the Rotimi Amaechi-backed African Action Congress (AAC).

There was drama as the Returning Officer Claimed no incidences as an APP Agent stood up to counter his claims insisting that no Collation held in Obioakpor due to disruptions. Then Another Party Agent also stood to declare him an impostor.

An Agent who also introduced himself as representing the AAC explained that although his party have issues with the results, they will approach the right Quarters.
