Comrade Giama claimed that the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission, DSIEC denied its members assess to monitor/observe the local government elections in the state.

He explained that the organization applied early to monitor the election but they were denied because they knew their reports wouldn’t be favourable and friendly to them.
