Accredited observers  by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, for the 2015 general elections have submitted their reports, while commending the Abia electorates for their peaceful conduct at the polls.

In a communique signed by twelve Civil Society Organisations, made available to factnewsonline, the observers noted that elections in the state were peacefully conducted on April 11 and 25, except at Umunneochi Local Government Area where the observers noted that supplementary election could not hold.
The observers also commended the Abia State Police Command and other security agencies for their professional conduct at the polls. Adding that the conduct and comport of Abians  was commendable.
The civil society groups noted that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, performed better at the supplementary elections, while adjuding it as free, fair and credible.

On the reaction of an international observer,Shirley Wilson at the collation of results at the Independent National Electoral Commission's headquarters on Sunday April 13, the observers described such action as against the observation laws which only permits that one will only observe and report back to the organisation without having affiliations with anyone.

They however, commended the Abia State government and the people of the state for their hospitality, and urged that unalloyed support be given to all elected candidates to allow for even development.
