Delta rerun election ‘very’ successful, says INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared that the Delta House of Assembly rerun election in Burutu and Ethiope West Constituencies was very successful.

Etekamba Umoren, the new state INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, stated this on Saturday in Asaba after monitoring the election.

He said, ” I will describe the election as being very successful because of the polling units that we visited; the voters, party agents and even the security agents who were there were happy.

”There was no shortage of voting materials. The BVAS worked perfectly, and you can see the cordial relationship between the voters. So, I must say that the election was successful. ”

He, however, noted that there was still a need for improvement, if necessary, in subsequent elections.

On her part, the member representing Ethiope Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Erhiatake Ibori-Suenu, adjudged the election as peaceful.

“Though there was not enough time for campaigns, but with what we are seeing today, people just want to put an end to this by getting a representative at the State House of Assembly,” she said.

However, Ms Ibori-Suenu stressed the need to enlighten voters on the importance of having their PVC and, at the same time, exercising their voting rights.

”Your voice can only be heard once you use the PVC. I actually want them to take this as a message for 2027 that their power is their PVC,” she added.
