Rivers election: Awara abandons ‘police result’

Governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in Rivers State Biokpomabo Awara has abandoned results tendered by Superintendent of Police, Solomon Egba, to the governorship election tribunal.



Awara brought in Egba as a subpoenaed witness to tender concocted results/documents, but lawyers to the defendants opposed their admissibility because they were part of paragraphs already struck out by the tribunal.

At the resumed hearing on Sunday, Awara’s lawyer, Emenike Ebete, said his client decided to abandon the police documents because they were of no value, and since they were dumped on the tribunal.



He said: “We will not be tendering the documents brought in by the police. They are of no value to us. We hereby abandon the documents brought by the police.”

 Court dismisses AAC’s suit against Rivers election

Emmanuel Ukala, lawyer to the Rivers State governor told Awara that no subpoena was served on the Office of the Inspector-General of Police (IG) as the tribunal registry indicates.

Awara was a petitioner-witness yesterday. He was cross examined by lawyers of AAC, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Governor Nyesom Wike and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He admitted that the results, marked exhibit, were not signed, without INEC’s official stamp, had no names of Collation officers and were not signed by party agents. According to him, the results had no authenticating features because that was how his agents received them from the field.

Awara, during cross examination by AAC’s lawyer, Henry Bello, admitted that other than the official INEC results, he had no other results. Though he held no rallies in any of the 23 councils, he did a few consultations in Akuku-Toru Local Government Area.

The candidate, during cross examination by INEC’s lawyer, Steve Adehi, admitted that he did not tender all the results declared by INEC after the election. He also admitted that results were declared for Obio/Akpor council after due collation.

The tribunal adjourned till today for the second petitioner, AAC, to open its case.
