The Obi-Datti Campaign Media office has berated the Independent National Electoral Commission for liking a tweet that tended to deride the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

The Obi-Datti Media Office said in a statement by Mr Duran Onifade, it’s Head of Media, that the electoral office must, as a matter of law and morality, be neutral at all times.

The office condemned the action of INEC in liking the post by a partisan person who has chosen his own candidate.

The Office asked INEC to provide explanation to the public and apologize to the LP Presidential Candidate.

“Obi-Datti Media 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.”
