Independent National Electoral Commission Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, on Wednesday said the Labour Party’s allegation that the commission’s National Commissioner, Prof. Lai Olurode, is a member of a political party.

Speaking in Akure on Wednesday during a stakeholders’ meeting, Jega said INEC’s had found out the claim was meant to smear the commissioner’s integrity.

He stressed that none of INEC’s workers had any affiliation with any political party.

Jega said,” Your allegation is spurious. No member of INEC is a member of any political party.

“If you have any evidence to support your allegation, provide it. We will do the right thing.

“But our investigation has shown that your claim is spurious.

“We don’t take any allegation as spurious immediately it is made. We investigate every allegation.” Home Page
