INEC Denies Recognising Lawan, Akpabio As Senatorial Candidates by fergie001: 5:52pm On Aug 09, 2022
INDEPENDENT NATIONAL ELECTORAL COMMISSION

PRESS RELEASE

SPURIOUS ALLEGATIONS IN RESPECT OF NOMINATION OF CANDIDATES IN SOME SENATORIAL DISTRICTS


Not for the first time, our attention has been drawn to a story published by an online medium that the Commission has doctored, backdated and certified documents to accommodate the nominations emanating from Yobe North and Akwa Ibom North
West Senatorial Districts in respect of Senators Ahmed Lawan and Godswill Akpabio. Nothing can be further from the truth.

As evidence of the alleged role played by the Commission, a certified true copy of Form 9C uploaded by their political party and received by the Commission on 17th June 2022 when the nomination portal closed was presented.

For clarity, the Form EC9 (submission of names of candidates by political parties) is the Form uploaded by parties on the INEC nomination portal. This is clearly indicated on the title of the Form which was received on 17th June 2022 when the portal closed. What follows is the publication of the personal particulars of nominated candidates which was done a week later.

The Forms of the two personalities in question were not published by the Commission. The decision of the Commission triggered legal action which are still ongoing. It therefore defies logic and common sense to go around and submit doctored documents purportedly recognising the duo as candidates when the matter is clearly sub-judice.

As part of the ongoing case in Court, a law firm requested the Commission for a Certified True Copy (CTC) of the Form EC9 submitted by the All Progressives Congress (APC) as its candidate for Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District which we are duty bound to oblige them under the law. The Form was certified on 15th July 2022. If minimum care has been exercised by the promoters of the story, they would have seen the two stamps of the Commission bearing different dates on the Form. It is this Form that is now misconstrued as INEC's endorsement.

For the record, the Commission has not recognised any of the two personalities as a Senatorial candidate.

We call for responsible reportage as against the unwarranted attack on the Commission and its officials over a matter than can be easily fact checked.

Festus Okoye Esq.
National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee

Tinubu zombies were masturbating on the fake new earlier, they are expecting INEC to help them rig Tinubu to power in 2023, since it is clear to them Tinubu is unsellable and Tinubu can't win election in the south South South East and the entire North
Sowore and Shara Reporters will just be creating confusion everywhere by spreading propaganda

An uninformed nation is a bad politicians joy. Nigerians are gradually getting informed.

Thank God for the internet.

We no longer have to rely on media subjected to the federal or state governments.

Tinubu and his crook supporters are banking on rigging, since Tinubu is not sellable anywhere except by zombies who cherish sufferings and lawlessness
The electronic voting system (BVAS) has made it harder for crooks like Tinubu and his gangs to rig election, stealing and stuffing of ballots boxes by Tinubu thugs led by MC Oluomo will no longer work under electronic transmission of results
Tinubu and his 40 thieves rigging plans are dead on arrival

The amount of fake news being pumped out on a daily is just mind-buggling. One has to take every news item with a pinch of salt. It's just digusting.
