The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has dismissed viral reports on the disqualification of the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship primaries in Anambra State.
The Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, told The Nation that the reports are mere ruse.
He said: “When we issue a statement you know the source, Festus Okoye signs our official statement, have we issued any official statement saying that any political party has been disqualified?”
According to him, “all these rookie journalists seeking attention, how can you just pick up a paper and you didn’t see INEC logo on it, that thing should have been concocted by someone and claiming that it is from INEC.
“Another thing you should know, is that if we send people to monitor primaries of political parties, they are expected to write report but that report is not for public consumption, it is supposed to be internal report and even anyone is found acting on that report, he should be arrested because he stole the report.”
