“The elections was well organised, but in bringing results from the local government areas, it took a little time for us to collate the results,” Ndaeyo said.

He alleged that some politicians tried to thwart the efforts of the commission.

Meanwhile, the APC, in a statement called for the cancellation of the results.

The statement was signed by Mr Iniobong Okopido, and Mr Augustine Ekanem, Chairman and Secretary, respectively.
