 It has been drama so far at the collation center of the INEC headquarters in Abuja.
A collation officer, Elder Godswill Orubebe of the PDP Confronted the INEC Chairman Attahiru Jega Live On National Television when the second batch of the announcement of the presidential election result was about to commence.
In a tantrum which lasted for more than 15 minutes  Orubebe was accusing the INEC chairman of being partial, tribalistic, selective, and that he has been compromised and they’ve lost confidence in him.
According to what we gathered, there are allegations of INEC releasing doctored results for the APC, which have given the APC a massive lead against the PDP.
Here is part of what Orubebe said during the confrontation:-
“Mr Chairman you are partial and selective! We have lost confidence in you. You are compromised!”

In her posting Linda Ikeji reported that, Orubebe accused Professor Jega of being  selective, partial and is tribalistic. He said APC had written a letter to INEC concerning an alleged rigging in Rivers state which he immediately sent a committee to investigate the issue but that when PDP wrote protest letters on the elections in Katsina, Kaduna and Jigawa, Jega did not send anyone to attend to their protest.


Orubebe, who is a former Minister of Niger Delta, is now calling for Jega to stop result collation. He sat on stage and refused to allow the result announcement to continue...



 Elder Godswill OrubebeOrubebe became a Supervisory Councilor, and later Chairman of Burutu LGA. In July 2007, President Umaru Yar'Adua appointed him Minister of Special Duties.  Later he became Minister of State for Niger Delta Affairs when that ministry was created in December 2008. In January 2010 he said that the proposed 10% equity share policy on infrastructural development in the Niger Delta region would make vandalism and crisis a thing of the past.

Elder Peter Godsday Orubebe (born 6 June 1959) was appointed Nigerian Minister of Niger Delta on 6 April 2010 when Acting President Goodluck Jonathan announced his new cabinet.
