The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has appealed to Mr Ovuakpoye Evivie, winner of the Sept. 11, Isoko South by-election in Delta, to help recover five Bi-modal Voter Accreditation System (BIVAS) device snatched during the poll.
Pastor Monday Udoh-Tom, the state INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) made the call on Wednesday in Asaba during the presentation of Certificate of Return to Evivie.
”The missing of the BIVAS device has painted a very negative image of its successful deployment in pilot stage in Delta.
“Go back to the community and help us talk to youths or whoever may have taken custody of the devices to release them to us.
”I believe you have a role to play in helping the commission to ensure quick recovery of the devices,” he added.
Udoh-Tom further appealed to Evivie to provide quality representation for the people of his constituency and also advised him to be a unifying force by healing the wounds of division brought about by the election.
