Ben Murray-Bruce, a Senator representing Bayelsa East constituency berates INEC

The commission is currently under fire from Nigerians who have taken to a micro-blogging site (Twitter) to condemn the March 19 exercise, which was later declared inconclusive.

Nigerians who are politically affiliated and those concerned with the recent happenings in the state berated the commission’s handling of the exercise.

However, in a statement issued by Oluwole Osaze- Uzzi, director, voter education and publicity, the commission, which conducted elections into various seats in both the national and state’s house of assembly on Saturday, raised the alarm on the high level of threats, violence and intimidation of election officials and voters by well armed thugs and miscreants allegedly acting on behalf of some politicians.
