The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it has not released any more results of the Rivers State re-run elections except the 10 it released earlier.

The commission therefore called on members of the public to discountenance information making the rounds that it has released results of the state assembly and Federal House of Representatives elections for Port Harcourt state and federal constituencies.

Some radio stations monitored in Port Harcourt had earlier on Monday reported that Kenneth Chikere of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) polled 18,904 votes to beat Igochukwu Aguma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who got 6,035 votes in Port Harcourt Federal Constituency I.

In Port Harcourt Federal Constituency II, Blessing Nsiegbe of PDP was said to have polled 6,968 votes to beat Collins Owonda of the APC who got 3,154 votes.

Other results announced at the various collation centres, according to the stations, also indicate that in Port Harcourt State Constituency 2, PDP’s Smart Adoki Ibisiki got 15,240 votes to defeat APC’s Irine Inimgba who polled 2,844 votes.

Reacting to the results, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC, Aniedi Ikoiwak, told THISDAY that the commission stands on the result it declared on Sunday.

He reiterated that in the results released by the commission, the PDP had won eight state constituencies namely Ahoada East 1and 2, Akukutoru 1, Emohua, Obio/Akpor 1 and 2, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni 1, Omuma and Opobo; while the APC had won in one, Opobo/Nkoro.
