Disconnects power From APC’s Forensic Experts In INEC
There is total Black out at the Rivers State INEC office in Port Harcourt as the APC forensic experts were on hand to audit Electoral materials allegedly used for the conduct of the sharmbollic elections in Rivers State.
Recall, the Rivers State election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja had repeatedly ordered
that APC and its candidate Dr Dakuku Adol Peterside be allowed to inspect materials used for the conduct of Elections. INEC REC in Rivers State Dame Gesilha Khan have fragrantly disobeyed this lawful directive.  A situation that made top APC Leaders protest to INEC headquarters in Abuja last Thursday. 
But in what appears to be a swift response,  INEC Headquarters immediately redeployed three administrative Secretaries to Rivers State office of the commission to fercilitate the immediate forensic examination of the Electoral materials.
Surprisingly,  INEC office in Port Harcourt that before now enjoys uninterrupted power supply was suddenly cut off from the National grid.  Our findings revealed that this development was deliberately orchestrated by the share and desperate connivance of PDP, PHED and Gesilah khan’s back room staffs (Engineers) still working in Rivers State INEC office. Worthy of Note is the fact that INEC, enjoys first line charge from the fedration account and as such is not, and Could not be said to be owing PHED. There alternative power source (generator) which was up and running suddenly develops fault.
APC’s head of legal team,  Barr Henry Odili confirmed the development to us in a telephone Interview with a radio station monitored in Port Harcourt.
Political watchers in the state have observed that this is another ploy in PDP’s strings of delay antics aimed at frustrating the Petition brought by the APC before Rivers State election petition tribunal. 
Different frivoriouse application has been brought before the tribunal to delay the course of justice, Some of which have been dismissed. Only recently, the PDP is asking the tribunal to throw away APC’s petition on the grounds of “Non payment of 100 Naira” filing fee.  Haba!!!,  But the supreme court had repeatedly admonished Election Petition Tribunal Judges to deal with all petitions on its merit rather than sacrificing facts and merit on the alter of Technicalities,  a position the tribunal had repeatedly maintained.
