In a related development, former INEC Chairman, Prof. Maurice Iwu, has denied issuing a statement on the decision of the electoral body to declare last Saturday’s election in Osun State inconclusive.
He had been quoted as berating INEC for making the decision against the dictates of the constitution. But in a WhatsApp message to THISDAY yesterday, Iwu refuted the statement, saying he did not make it.
“Please this is fake news,” he said, adding, “I have never issued any statement on electoral process and INEC since 2010. This is reckless journalism. I have NEVER met that journalist before. The Guidelines he referred to was even prepared when I had left INEC.”
