A political analyst, Sumner Sambo, has reacted to the report by BBC that the results of the February 25, 2023 Presidential election in Rivers State were tampered with; after he recounted how the Collation Officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the State, Professor Charles Adias, had earlier revealed that results were authored at polling units before they were brought back to the Collation Centre.
Sambo had said, "During the election period, Professor Adias, who was the State Chief Collation Officer for the Presidential election, had raised the issue and said that look, there was even a threat to his own life because of the allegations that he had manipulated the election; but he said, ‘no’, tampering of election results actually happened at the polling units."
