Announcing the results, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Returning officer, Prof. Prekeye Tawari-Fideyin,said Amori polled 1116,723 votes to defeat two other contestants.
Ovie Omo-Agege of the Labour party(LP) 76,635 votes and Halims Agoda of the All Progressive Congress (APC) polled 15, 491 votes .
Following the announcement of the result, residents in Mosogar, the hometown of Amori in Ethiope West Local Government Area, took to streets in jubilation. Martins Aruviere, the Media Director, Omo-Agege Campaign Organisation in his reaction, commended the electorates for their disposition and support for the LP. Aruviere who spoke on behalf of Omo-Agege, however, said INEC was not truly independent as it claimed to be.''Results from LP strongholds were unanimously cancelled, especially in Ethiope East, Uvwie and Udu local government areas. ''This is just the beginning, election is just the first phase, the tribunal is there to scrutinise and question the process,'' he said.
Agoda could not be reached for comment.
A hearty congratulation to our newly elected senator from the Tpj house.
