A voter who spoke to journalists in the state said: “We are not happy. How can they bring Ehime Mbano result of Okigwe South to Owerri?. Why did they not declare the result at the collation centre of the Federal constituency which is Ihette Uboama?"

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that there was mild drama at the Imo West collation centre after the INEC's returning officer in the centre stopped collating results and announced that he has been directed to return to Owerri immediately.
