The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the resumption of collation of results of the March 18, 2023 Gubernatorial/ State Assembly Elections in Abia state following a temporary suspension.

In a statement issued on Wednesday afternoon, 22nd March 2023, the electoral body said:

“…Arising from the meeting, the Commission took the decision to suspend further collation of the Governorship election results in some parts of Abia and Enugu states in order to carry out a review of the collation processes in both states.

“The Commission has concluded the review. 

“Consequently, the collation of results for the Governorship election in both Abia and Enugu states will continue today, 22nd March, 2023.”

It would be recalled that the electoral umpire had on Monday, 20th March, 2023 halted further collation of election results in both Abia and Enugu states owing to reports of electoral vices.
