INEC CHAIRMAN; Mahmood Yakubu

The Independent National Electoral Commission

(INEC) has called out to the public to beware of

election “results’’ circulating on social media.

In a message on its verified Twitter handle,

@inecnigeria, on Sunday afternoon, the commission

said it was the only body constitutionally empowered

to declare the results of the elections. “It has also come to our notice that some election `results’ are

circulating on the various social media platforms.

“Kindly disregard such ‘results’ as only INEC is

constitutionally empowered to declare the outcome

of the elections,’’ it said. Some Minutes later, INEC

said on the same platform that elections were still

ongoing in some areas of the country. It added that

detailed reports of such areas would be

communicated at a news briefing scheduled to hold at

the National Collation Centre in Abuja at 3 p.m.
