“ In particular , INEC is concerned with a situation where mischievous individuals post unofficial election results on the internet . This has the tendency of fomenting violence and mayhem resulting in the loss of precious lives and property .
“ It is on record that fake news gave birth to break up of diplomatic relations of countries, while in other cases resulted into wars or unjustified invasions only to come to terms with the true situation much later and leave the rest to history . ’’

Wike vows to restrict any plot by the inec to postpone rivers election

Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said the alleged plot by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the 2019 general elections in Rivers state to allow the All Progressives Congress (APC) prepare, will be resisted.
The governor disclosed this on Saturday at the state PDP rally at Okehi.
He alleged that INEC is working in liaison with the APC to illegally postpone Rivers elections and allegedly create room for manipulation.
Wike recalled that INEC had, two years ago in Ondo State, established the precedent that no election would be postponed on the account of intra-party crisis.
“We know all the tricks of INEC. INEC is a fraudulent institution that lacks credibility. Because of Rivers State, INEC will sink.
“As the election is approaching, INEC is trying to give hope to APC in Rivers State. Remember that INEC is a member of the APC. It is number three on the APC official register.
“Two years ago, PDP had a problem in Ondo State. Three days to the election, the Court of Appeal gave judgement and PDP requested for postponement, but INEC bluntly refused to grant that request.
“Now APC has a problem and INEC is claiming they will postpone Rivers elections to give APC opportunity to prepare. I am warning INEC not to try that rubbish in Rivers State “.
The governor said that the INEC Commissioner who is circulating the negative propaganda should seek God’s forgiveness or face divine consequences.
“Anybody plotting against Rivers State will not survive”, he said.
Speaking on the forthcoming elections, Governor Wike urged the people of the state to vote for Atiku Abubakar and other PDP candidates on 16th February and 2nd March, 2019.
He said a vote for Atiku Abubakar will lead to the revival of the national economy, which will provides employment.
Also speaking at the campaign, the National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus said that Governor Wike deserves a second term because of his outstanding projects delivery.
The PDP National Chairman warned that any attempt to rig the forthcoming elections will lead to crisis.

Asuu will communicate its decision on FG offers today.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will today communicate its decision on the offers made to it by the Federal Government, its National President Prof Abiodun Ogunyemi said yesterday.

The union had urged the government to show concrete evidence of commitment to agreements on meeting its demands on its on-going strike.
Ogunyemi said that contrary to some media reports, the union did not reject the government offer neither has it make fresh demands.
Labour & Employment Minister Chris Ngige, after meeting with the union on January 4, said the government was about resolving the dispute with the lecturers who embarked on strike on November 5, last year.
Dr. Ngige said the Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Accountant- General of the Federation had provided evidence that N15.4 billion for the payment of salary shortfall in public universities.
He also noted that there was evidence that Mr President had approved N20 billion to offset the outstanding arrears of the 2009 and 2012, audit verified earnings in the university system.
The minister, however, said the fund was being worked on and would be released to ASUU as soon as the process was complete, among other demands of the union.

The ASUU president said: “We have been reviewing the offer made by the government and we have concluded our consultations with our members.
“We have concluded our consultations and hopefully by tomorrow we are going to transmit the feedback from our members to the Minister of Labour and Employment.
“What we said was that we are not insisting on having the total package. We are saying if government could give us one out of the five tranches on the revitalisation fund it will be a kind of bending backward in the interest of the students and national interest.
“So, rather than insisting that government should release a total of one trillion naira which we know is not feasible, government can, at least, give one tranche that can be spread over four quarters, starting with the first quarter now.
“This is the shift that the media are misinterpreting to mean a fresh demand. There is no fresh demand on our list whether you are talking of revitalisation or earned academic allowance.”
On the issue of earned academic allowances, he said government had promised to release N20 billion and that the balance would be spread over four instalments but without stating timelines.
Ogunyemi said members of the union were insisting on having timelines for the payments.
He said: “Our members are also saying government had also promised to mainstream and that promise is not new, it was a promise of 2017.
“Our members have also noted that government had promised that the earned academic allowance will be paid within the mainstream budget which they also promised to do in 2018, yet they did not do it
“Our members are saying if you are promising again in 2019, let us see the evidence, which is clear enough.”
Ogunyemi also said that members of the union were demanding to see money of salary shortfall paid into their accounts although they had seen the evidence of approval on paper.
He said that the members of the union were demanding for concrete evidence on all outstanding areas that involved payments.
Ogunyemi said: “Our members are saying let us see concrete evidence that government has paid not that government will be promising that it will do this and will do that.
“We did that with the N20 billion in 2017, government promised to release N20 billion in two instalments for September and October, 2017, that never happened until we went on strike in 2018.
“So, our members are saying, let’s go beyond writing anything on paper.
“Like I said earlier, on the issue of revitalisation, our members are saying we should not stop at tokenism.”
