Police To Remain At Deployed Areas Till New Election Dates


Rivers State residents, who have described the postponement as demoralizing, have called for extension of Permanent Voter Card (PVC) collection.

The extension, according to them, would enable more citizens to collect their cards and exercise their franchise during the new dates for the polls.

Meanwhile, the State Police Commissioner, Musa Belel has assured that the 15,544 police officers deployed across the state for the failed election date would remain at their duty posts until the new dates for the polls.

Belele stated that the officers were being kept till the new dates to control crime, and ensure adequate security before and after the elections.
