INEC Warns Nigerians Against Posting Election Results On Social Media

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has advised the general public to be wary of election 'results' circulating on social media.
INEC Chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu said this in a message on its verified Twitter handle, @inecnigeria, on Sunday afternoon.
"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.
Minutes earlier, 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.
