INEC has not suspended 202 indicted staff members, says Director

The Independent National Electoral Commission denies suspending 202 staff members indicted for election malpractices by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC).

INEC’s Director of Publicity, Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Abuja on Monday.

Osaze-Uzzi media report that the affected staff had been suspended by the commission was false.

He said there was no way the commission would have suspended the staff members based on the allegation until they were properly investigated.

Osaze-Uzzi stated that the commission was still in the process of investigating the allegation and interviewing all affected in line with the principle of fair hearing.
