The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has halted the collation of results for the governorship election in Rivers State.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Obo Effanga, announced this on Tuesday at the collation centre in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
According to him, the electoral body will continue with the exercise at 10am on Wednesday
The announcement followed the collation of results from 15 Local Government Areas of the state.
INEC had suspended all electoral processes in Rivers on March 10, following reports of widespread disruption of elections in the state.
Barely two weeks after, the commission said it would continue with the process and released a timeline for the conclusion of the exercise.
According to the timeline released by INEC on March 21, INEC will resume the collation and announcement of election results in Rivers between April 2 and 5.
It will also conduct supplementary election where necessary, and in some constituencies not affected by litigation on April 13.
The electoral body will conclude the issuance of all outstanding certificates of return on April 19.
