The National Elections Commission (NEC) has described as fake a ‘purported’ email from its administrator to Chairman Jerome Korkoya.
There are alleged emails exchanges between some officials of the commission including Chairman Korkoya, with some insinuating that the voters’ roll was tampered with.
However, NEC Communication Director Henry Flomo said the email account was illegally generated and circulated to dispute the reputation and credibility of the October 10 electoral process.
“The Commission clarifies that the email in question was never written or circulated by Chairman Korkoya and the contents contained therein are false and only designed to cause confusion in the country,” Flomo told a news conference on Monday, December 4, 2017.
He disclosed that the commission has asked the police to probe the matter.
According to him, the sender used firstname.lastname@example.org which does not exist on NEC’s server.
“For all official mails, internal and external, NEC uses the first letter of first names and then last names plus the domain address. Therefore the address of the sender is faked,” Flomo maintained.
