INEC speaks on ‘secret meeting’ with APC



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied the allegation of holding any secret meeting with officials and leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had alleged that two INEC directors, had been holding meetings with the APC guber candidate in Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi.

It added that the officers were also meeting Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu to rig the election.

But Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi on Thursday in Abuja urged members of the public to disregard the allegation.

“INEC has never met secretly with officials or leaders of any political party”, NAN quoted him as saying.

“The Commission meets quarterly with all political parties under the aegis of the Inter Party Consultative Committee (IPAC).

“Political party leaders or officials are also free to request for a meeting with the Commission and when such written requests are received, reviewed and approved, the INEC Chairman and all National Commissioners meet with party officials.

“The public should disregard the unsubstantiated allegation.’’
