Electoral commission officers count votes at Shagari Health Unit polling station in Yola, Adamawa State on February 23, 2019 after the polls were closed during the day of the General elections. - Nigeria began counting votes in presidential elections, even as many people had yet to even cast their ballot because of delays in the opening of polling units and problems with staffing and technology. Nigeria's Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) last week announced a one-week delay to the election, just hours before it was due to get under way. The presidential contest will see incumbent Muhammadu Buhari (APC) seek to win a second four-year term against former vice president Atiku Abubakar (PDP).

Uwakweb alleged that the returning officer, Professor Donatus Ohajianya attempted to declare Sen. Benjamin Uwajumogu with fake result sheet before he was stopped by party agents.

He also said that Uwajumogu neither campaign nor consulted leaders of the senatorial zone about his intention to return to the Senate.

The PDP stalwart said that Ohajianya allegedly compromised and has since disappeared and has been declared wanted by INEC Owerri.

Uwakwe regretted that refusal to declare the Imo North senatorial election could cause a total break down of law and order in the area as the electorates are becoming impatient while calling on INEC to declare Ndubueze winner.
