Fake News: INEC reacts to the rumoured resignation Of its ICT director, Chidi Nwafor


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied speculations that its Director in charge of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Chidi Nwafor has resigned.

INEC on its verified Twitter handle, asked Nigerians to disregard the rumour, adding that Nwafor only just returned from South Africa where he went to represent the commission at an event.

“The rumour circulating that our Director ICT, Engr. Chidi Nwafor has resigned is totally false and should be disregarded.

The Director and another staff have just returned from South Africa where they represented INEC at the high-level 5th Annual Meeting of ID4Africa Movement in Johannesburg (18 – 20 June 2019).

Neither he nor any senior staff has resigned his appointment or indicated such intention, since the elections,” the tweet read.
