Just in: INEC talks on postponement of Saturday’s presidential, national assembly elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] has debunked reports that the body was planning to postpone Saturday’s elections.

Presidential and National Assembly elections are scheduled to hold in few hours from now.

Festus Okoye, the National Commissioner for voter Education and Publicity at INEC, has asked Nigerians not to believe the rumours, but to ignore it, he made this known on Friday.

According to him: “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”.
