Senator Anyanwu, who made the call in a statement signed by his media aide, Ikenba Onuoha warned against any attempt to re-write the mandate of the people.

“It therefore becomes worrisome that over 24 hours after votes were cast, officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are yet to announce results.

“Our people cannot continue to watch helplessly the orchestrated plot by enemies of the state and Nigeria at large to subvert the will of the masses.

“We are aware that majority of Imo indigenes participated in the exercise and the outcome was so impressive.

“Regrettably, the delay of the officials of INEC to release result of the election as it reflects the minds of the citizens 24 hours after election is suspicious and as well, dangerous to our democracy”
