RELEASE ELECTORAL DOCUMENTS TO ALLOW APC FORENSIC EXPERTS ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS



AN OPEN ADVISE TO THE REC; HEAD OF OPERATIONS; HEAD OF LEGAL; ADMIN. SECRETARY AND OTHERS.
Dear REC Rivers State and @All, 
Recall that the first ever application made by the APC requesting documents for the GOVERNORSHIP AND HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY ELECTION was made on the 12th of May, 2015 and the last reminder was made on 13th June, 2015. In between these dates, APC had made 10 reminder applications. Again, It is 15days today, since the Election Tribunal ordered INEC/REC RIVERS STATE to make available documents to the APC FORENSIC EXPERTS FOR INSPECTION, yet the REC. HEAD LEGAL, HEAD OPERATION, ADMIN SEC...etc have willfully refused to release the documents or carry out the orders of the court.
The public would also recall that the issue of refusal by INEC to release documents to the APC has also been in the media severally. No matter the helplessness that these INEC OFFICIALS may want to foist on the APC, I want to ADVISE AND REMIND them that THE NIGERIAN STATE MAY NOT BE AS HELPLESS AS THEY THINK, BECAUSE THEY ARE ALSO VIOLATING THE NIGERIAN STATE, AND SHE HAS A REMEDY...and the APC WOULD ACTIVATE THAT REMEDY
Dear REC and @All, I wish to, freely at no legal cost, draw your attention to the provisions of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended) and the consequences of your actions:

Access to election documents
"77.-( I )The Resident Electoral Commissioner, in a State where an election is conducted, shall, within 7 days after an application is made to him by any of the parties to an election petition, cause such documents or the certified true copy thereof, to be issued to the said party.
(2) Any Resident Electoral Commissioner who willfully fails to comply with subsection ( I ) of this section commits an offence and is liable on conviction to a maximum fine of N2,000,000.00 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding12 months, or both." 
Please, kindly release the electoral documents to us. WE DO NO WANT ANYONE TO SHOUT "WITCH-HUNT" TOMORROW. You are advised

Please, kindly circulate until it gets to INEC RIVERS STATE (REC; HEAD OF LEGAL; HEAD OF OPERATIONS; ADMIN SEC; etc) and every other INEC STAFF in the Country who is in violation of the Electoral Act.
