Announcing the result of the poll on Sunday in Calabar, Chairman of the Cross River State Independent Electoral Commission, CROSIEC, Dr Mike Ushie said that the results were not manufactured but also announced at various levels including wards, LGAs.

“All the results emanated from the field, our duty is to declare the results and issue certificate of return to the winners, which is what we have done here today,” he said.

Ushie commended the media for its patience adding that they understand the terrain of the state which makes collation of result from hard to reach areas very difficult.

The local governments include, Abi, Biase, Yala, Ogoja, Calabar -South, Calabar Municipal, Boki, Obudu, Bekwarra, Bakassi, Yakurr, Obanliku, Odukpani, Obubra, Etung, Ikom, Akpabuyo and Akamkpa.
