The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied reports making rounds on social media that the body was planning to postpone Saturday’s elections.
According to Festus Okoye, National Commissioner for Voter Education and Publicity at INEC, there is no iota of truth in such report.
Okoye said Nigerians should ignore such rumours.
He said: “If stories are flying about, allow the stories to fly. What they are reporting is not true.”
When 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”.
