Osogbo - The Independent National Electoral Commission in Osun State has debunked the claim that two of its officers were suspended for colluding with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to rig the August 9 governorship election, reports Vanguard.
The two officers according to INEC were not suspended based on allegedly manipulating the electoral process to favour of the party in Osogbo and Obokun local government councils respectively.
Adenike Tadese, Chief Public Affairs Officer of the commission, said the officers were suspended based on administrative lapses occasioned in the course of discharging their duties.
She noted that INEC Headquarters did not find the Electoral Officers culpable of working for the APC to rig the election as purported by the PDP.
