Based on an unfounded allegation and reports making their way down to social media. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has dismissed a report linking it with it with a purported investigation of a presidential candidate, Ahmed Tinubu.
In its reports, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has dismissed a purported investigation of a criminal forfeiture case against the presidential candidate of the All-Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee of INEC, Festus Okoye, gave clarification yesterday in a statement.
According to him, a press release purported to have been issued by the commission has been trending online since Friday, Nov. 11.
It is the handiwork of mischief makers and utterly fake,” Okoye said.
He said that press releases from the commission are usually uploaded to the INEC Press Corps platform and simultaneously disseminated through its website and official social media handles.
He urged the public to ignore the press release in question.
For clarification, INEC announced that any information that emanates from their office will always be uploaded to the commission’s website (www.inecnigeria.org/display) and on their social media platforms.
