By Christian Njoku
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has declared the collation centre in Calabar for the governorship and state house of assembly elections open and fixed election results collation for Sunday.
During the declaration late Saturday at the INEC Secretariat in Calabar, Prof Gabriel Yomere, Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Cross River, introduced Prof. Teddy Adies, State Returning Officer for the election.
On his part, Adies said the collation of results at the state level was after each of the results had been announced at the Local Government level.
The returning officer, who is from the Federal University Otueke, asked if any LGA was ready with their result and since none was ready, he postponed the collation to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
He said by then, many results would have come in for the collation to fully commence.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that members of the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) in Cross River witnessed the event. (NAN)
