INEC dismiss claims it extended party primaries for APC

By Yomi Kareem

Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has dismissed accusations that it extended the conduct of political parties’ primaries because of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

INEC Director Voter Education and Publicity, Ayodele Aluko, stated this when he featured as a guest on 99.3 Nigeria Info’s The Newsroom programme yesterday.

The Director dismissed the accusations that the commission extended its June 3rd deadline for party primaries because it was influenced by the APC. While he maintained that the commission is a neutral organization that does not favour one over another.

On the closure of the Continuous Voter online pre-registration, the Independent National Electoral Commission said members of the public who were unable to register for their PVCs and resolve PVC related issues can still do so at INEC centers nationwide.

Mr. Aluko also dismissed assumptions that the commission may extend the deadline for online pre-registration which ended on Monday, 30th May 2022.

The electoral umpire had last week extended the conduct of political parties’ primaries, giving political parties that were yet to conduct the exercise a six days window of 4th and 9th June 2022, to do the needful, the decision it had earlier said was not feasible.
