The governorship candidate of Action Democratic Party (ADP) in Rivers State, Victor Fingesi, yesterday, called for the outright cancelation of the governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state.

Victor Fingesi who spoke with our reporter in Port Harcourt, said the election was marred by violence, vote buying, ballot box snatching and intimidation of voters in many polling units.

He said only agents of PDP and AAC could observe the collation of the results, adding that his polling agents were not signatories to any document at the polling unit and collation centres.

He alleged that both PDP and AAC were responsible for the disruption of the enabling environment put in place INEC.

He regretted that Rivers State was a battle ground as exemplified by the statement from the 6 Division of the Nigerian Army, Bori Camp, indicting the police and INEC.
