Drug Trafficking Allegations: We’re not ‘investigating’ Tinubu, says INEC
In response to allegations of drug trafficking levelled against Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the ruling All Progressives Congress, the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has denied authoring the statement.
Rotimi Oyekanmi, the INEC Chairman’s chief press secretary, informed our correspondent that the announcement was fake.
Festus Okoye, the INEC National Commissioner for Information and Voter Education Committee, was quoted in the aforementioned statement as saying that the commission was in contact with US authorities to learn more about the allegation in order to assess whether the APC standard bearer may have violated any pertinent electoral act 2022 provisions (as amended).
In a revised answer, Okoye urged the populace to disregard the false claim.
“A Press Release allegedly issued by the Commission has been trending online since yesterday, Friday, November 11, 2022,” he stated.
In order to determine whether there may have been a violation of our policies or the Electoral Act 2022, it is claimed that the Commission has opened an investigation into a case of criminal forfeiture against one of the Presidential candidates in the upcoming general election.
The Commission is also allegedly in contact with a court in the United States of America regarding this case.
INEC debunked Claims of investigating Tinubu
We want to be very clear that neither the Commission nor the aforementioned Press Release are taking the alleged course of action.
It is completely bogus and the product of troublemakers.

Press releases from the Commission are published on the INEC Press Corps platform, our website, and our official social media accounts at the same time.
