The Obi-Datti Campaign Media office has demanded an answer from the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC on why it liked a tweet that tended to deride the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
A statement signed by Diran Onifade Head, Media Obedient Media said INEC as an umpire in the election is not expected to support or attack any candidate or political party.
The statement said it takes serious exception to INEC liking a post by a partisan person who has chosen a candidate to support.
“We expect the commission to explain to the concerned public who are looking up to them to be above board why they had to show such a level of obvious bias.
“Obi-Datti Media office notes that even if somebody in the Commission’s office wants to be biased, the law has denied them that, because of the moral standards being expected of them.
“We expect INEC to come clean on this issue as it’s capable of eroding public confidence in the commission to conduct a free, fair, and transparent election. INEC should publicly apologize to the high-flying LP Presidential standard bearer.”
