Lamenting the ongoing delay in making public the winner of the governorship election, by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, the party beckoned at the international observers as well as the international community to as a matter of urgency wade in.

Irammae, who stated this during an interactive session with newsmen, said the party will not go to bed with its two eyes closed pending when the leadership of INEC insert the right peg in the right hole.

The INEC State Collation/Returning Officer and Resident Electoral Commission (REC), according to him, “have no reason to delay the announcement of Col. Agbu Kefas as the winner of the governorship election after polling 255,317 votes.”
