The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Nigeria’s electoral umpire, has denied postponing Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections.
Naija News reports that the Commission fixed the Presidential and National Assembly elections February 16, but reports in some quarters in the country suggest that the elections have been postponed.
Speaking on the development Festus Okoye, the National Commissioner for Voter Education and Publicity at INEC, told DAILY POST Friday night that Nigerians should ignore the rumours.
His words: “If stories are flying about, allow the stories to fly. What they are reporting is not true.”
Asked to respond to information that INEC commissioners were in a meeting, Okoye said: “Yes we are in a meeting but we have not taken such decision.
“This is election period and as commissioners, we meet every time,” Okoye said.
