“In case of Rivers, the commission will conclude the collation exercise there because it was not declared inconclusive.”

“Initially, we had penciled Bauchi down as one of the states for which there will be supplementary election, but as I speak now, quite honestly, we are not sure of that.”

“The commission will on Tuesday appoint a new collation officer who will go back and conclude the collation for areas affected in the state”

“Also if it is found out that there are no sufficient votes and there is need for a supplementary election, then one (an election) will be conducted.”
