This interesting development is continuation of Governor Rotimi Amaechi's position against the holding of elections in his state. On Saturday when he got to his polling unit the Governor had asked to sight the result sheet. Polling officers at the unit had told him the result sheets were not as yet available. The Governor had thereafter called for a cancellation of the elections in the State. Recently Governor Amaechi, formerly of the ruling PDP before moving over to APC , has been one of the most vocal critics of President Goodluck Johnathan. This development may yet add an attention grabbing perspective to post election dynamics.
