Victor Umeh Reacts To Report That He Said Labour Party Got 2 Million Votes In Rivers State

Victor Umeh, the newly elected Senator for Anambra Central under the Labour Party, recently gave an interview to Arise News in which he discussed two main topics: the Presidential court case and his own election.

During the interview, Umeh explained that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had not yet complied with the court order allowing Labour Party access to the BVAS. The court had originally granted INEC permission to reconfigure the BVAS as long as the data stored on it was not wiped and was instead saved for future use. Umeh stated that if INEC altered the data on the BVAS, it would be considered tampering with the election.

In the interview, Umeh also denied having made the claim that the Labour Party received two million votes in Rivers state during the Presidential election. He suggested that this may have been a social media rumor or false statement. Umeh noted that such a claim would be impossible as the total number of accredited voters in Rivers state did not reach two million. He maintained that he never made such a statement and that it was untrue.

Victor Umeh's interview with Arise News focused on his views on the BVAS court case and his recent election to the Senate. He clarified his stance on the alleged statement that the Labour Party received two million votes in Rivers state and denied ever having made such a claim.
