We Will Not Issue Certificates Of Return Under Duress, INEC Insists

Posted by on March 8th, 2019 Under News, Videos

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will not issue certificates of return to elected public officers under duress.

INEC Director of Voter Education, Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, stated this during an interview on The Verdict which aired on Channels Television on Friday.

According to him, a situation whereby a Returning Officer is being threatened to declare a party’s candidate winner of an election under gunpoint or knifepoint amounts to illegality.

“A return is made when the Returning Officer is satisfied that the candidate

has met the requirements of law. It is a voluntary act of the returning officer.

“You cannot point a gun to a returning officer’s head and say sign this, he signs it and then says I have been declared (winner). That is illegality, that is not his act.
