OsunDecides: INEC Speaks On Staff Caught ‘altering’ Election Results


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has clarified the conduct of its staff, Mutiu Salawu, caught on Sunday at St. Patrick Grammar School, Gbongan, tearing the polls result for Ayedaade Local Government Area.

A video of the incident has gone viral online. In the video, Mr. Salawu said he was sent by the electoral officer for the LGA, Aderinoye Olukemi, to tear the result on the notice board at the collation centre of the LGA.

However, the Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC in Osun State, Segun Agbaje, in a statement on Tuesday explained Mr. Salawu was acting on a directive to replace the Form EC 60 which had erroneous result with the correct one.
