The Imo State Labour Party recently claimed that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had refused to provide the party with certified true copies of the materials used in the recently completed governorship election in the state. The INEC has responded to this claim.
In response, the electoral body stated that it had received the Labour Party’s application for certification of the documents and that it had been in continuous communication with them, telling them that the legal department would provide an estimate of the cost for the certification of all 33 items they had requested.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, made this disclosure in a post it made on X, noting that the commission is assembling all the needed documents to assess the cost so that payment could be made.
The post read: “INEC however acknowledges the receipt of the application for the certification of documents from the LP, and had held active correspondence with them, informing them that the legal department would estimate the cost of the certification of all 33 items they requested for.
“The Commission is assembling all the needed documents to assess the cost so that payment could be made.
“Management clearly understands the right of parties to request for CTC of documents and would work assiduously to issue them.”
Recall that the Imo State Labour Party recently accused the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, of refusing to give them the Certified True Copies (CTC) of the materials used during the last Governorship election in Imo State. Going by this statement that came from INEC, Nigerians now know the truth.
