The re-elected lawmaker
for Port Harcourt Federal Constituency II, Hon Blessing Charles Nsiegbe, says, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) under the present administration of President Mohammadu Buhari, has no courage to conduct a credible and acceptable election in Nigeria.
Hon Nsiegbe, who said this in an interview with newsmen in Port Harcourt, recently, said the masses may revolt in 2019, if there is no improvement from what was witnessed so far in the re-run of March 19, 2015 election in Rivers State.
She said, the experience from the just-concluded re-run polls in the state has shown that INEC was yet to come to grips with its constitutional mandate to conduct a credible and acceptable election in the country.
She called on the commission to re-orient it’s officials on good conduct during elections, noting that INEC failed woefully in the conduct of the recent rerun election in Rivers State.
Insisting that the conduct of the rerun polls was worse than the 2015 experience, Nsiegbe hinted that INEC would have rigged Port Harcourt Constituency II election in favour of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, if not by the grace of God.
The lawmaker described the outcome of the re-run polls in the state as a triumph of good over evil, and called on APC supporters to jettison the call for the cancellation of the election as the call was no longer possible.
Hon Nsiegbe, however stressed the need for all opposition parties including APC to join hands with Governor Nyesom Wike to move the state forward, saying that the interest of Rivers State must supersede all personal interests and parties in the state.
The lawmaker thanked her constituency for their unalloyed supports for her and the PDP, assuring that she would continue to bring dividends of democracy to them.
