We’ve reprimanded the official who issued withdrawal letter on Kano governorship appeal – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that the official who issued a letter claiming that the electoral umpire has withdrawn from the ongoing Kano Governorship election petition case, has been reprimanded.  Sam Olumekun, INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee said that the letter was not authorised. He also noted that where litigants join INEC in a case, the commission is under obligation to respond accordingly. Olumekun said;  We wish to state categorically that the letter was not authorised. It has since been withdrawn and the officer reprimanded.The public is therefore advised to discountenance the insinuation that the Commission has withdrawn from the case or even worse abandoned the appeal.We have therefore instructed our lawyers to proceed in line with extant policy of the Commission. The policy has not changed.The post Weve reprimanded the official who issued withdrawal letter on Kano governorship appeal – INEC appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
