The Independent National Electoral Commission,(INEC), has denied alleged appointment of Lagos State’s former Commissioner of Science and Technology, Femi Odubiyi, as the its Head of ICT.
Following Monday’s accusation by PDP’s Chieftain, Olabode George, as regards the alleged appointment, the electoral body had, in a statement issued yesterday, debunked the claim.
The electoral body stressed that the former commissioner’s name was never in its ICT personnel.
The statement read in part; “The attention of the Commission has been drawn to a widely publicised report attributed to a well known Lagos politician, Chief Olabode George, that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has appointed one Femi Odubiyi, a former Commissioner in Lagos State and an associate of a prominent politician, as its Head of ICT. Nothing can be further from the truth.
“To set the record straight, the name “Femi Odubiyi” does not even exist within our ICT Department at the INEC headquarters in Abuja or any State office of the Commission.”
The commission further claimed that none of its ICT officials have ever held a political post or appointment while urging members of the public to steer clear of the “fake news”
