During an interview with Arise News, Arise TV analyst, Sumner Sambo, stated that the discoveries of BBC especially in Obiakpo local government is the same with what people have been saying. He revealed that the elections in the state has always been controversial since the return to democracy in 1999.
He added that the matter is already in court, pointing out that it is left for the judiciary to decide the faith of the people. Sambo revealed that the results that were produced in 2007 election in Rivers State was the talk of the town at that time.
According to him, "It's nothing really new as these issues were before the tribunal. Nonetheless, we've always known that since 1999 when we return to democracy, elections in Rivers state has always been controversial. My God, in 2007, the results that came out from that state were the talk of the town. It was the same thing until 2011 when we started cleaning up the system and then gradually, results not only from Rivers but other part of the country, but I can tell you that the discovery by the BBC especially in Obiakpo local government area is not so distant from what a lot of people have said."
