Senators had directed the electoral body to conduct the Rivers and Anambra states election rerun before the second week of December.

Reacting, INEC National Commissioner, Prince Shoyebi said that the commission would not surrender its responsibility to any organisation.

“We will not surrender our responsibility to anybody. We are not moved by the Senate’s threat. The date did not have anything to do with the order of the Senate; it is purely done on the basis of our own responsibility. “We took our time because Rivers election is not done by ballot paper alone, but by guns.

We cannot expose other people’s children and our workers to danger, hence the need for us to tidy up,” he stated.
