With few days to the general elections holding in Nigeria, the electoral body, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has made a powerful announcement concerning the menace of vote buying as they revealed that they have adopted fresh strategies to check vote buying during the forthcoming general elections even as they insist that they would not collate and transmit the results via an electronic channel because there was no place for that in the 2010 Electoral Act.

The elections for both Presidential and National Assembly will hold first on February 16, while March 2 is the date set aside for the governorship and State House of Assembly elections and INEC will be keen on eradicating the menace of vote buying which reportedly plagued the governorship elections which held in the country in 2018.

According to reports during the governorship elections which held in Anambra, Ondo, Ekiti, Edo and Osun States, voters reportedly turned their votes to commodities of trade and boldly struck deals with party agents willing to pay the highest price.

Mr Okoye, during the interactive session, lamented the increasing vote buying incidences said the electoral commission was doing all it can to prevent the nefarious act but would not reveal the exact strategies because they claim that the people involved always find a way to thwart their efforts. He has since promised that the new strategies would shock all vote buyers and their sponsors come election day.

In his words, “The other strategies we have designed will not be made known so that they will not go ahead of us.”

Mr Okoye said the commission had enhanced the Smart Card Reader in readiness for the poll, adding that it had eliminated the use of incident forms and revealed that the election results would be collated and transmitted manually. He explained that though it had conducted pilot of electronic transmission of results and would continue to do so, it would not use the method because it was not recognised by the Electoral Act.

“We are collating and transmitting manually in accordance with the law. Everything is manual collation and manual transmission of results. INEC is aware that there is a bill before the National Assembly that may likely lead to the amendment of the law. It is important for INEC to pilot in e-collation and transmission of result so that any day the National Assembly amends the law, we will be ready to do that.

Mr Okoye further explained that some advanced democracies do not collate and transmit election results and those that were doing it had to revert to manual because they do not trust the technology. He said INEC was presently fine-tuning its preparation for the conduct of the two strands of the election and that the national commissioners had just returned from states where they went to assess the extent and levels of preparation for the polls.

The collation of results will take place in 8,809 registration areas/wards and in 119,973 polling units and 57,023 voting points nationwide.”

The Resident Electoral Commissioner in FCT, Yahaya Bello, who was present at the event appealed to the media to partner with the commission for the success of the elections. He said INEC was committed to the policy of inclusiveness and delivery of free, fair and credible elections.

Nigeria to extradite 80 citizens accused of fraud in USA – Dabiri-Erewa Nigeria to extradite 80 citizens accused of fraud in USA – Dabiri-Erewa Dabiri Erewa 1024x576

The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Friday declared that the Nigerian Government will extradite about eighty Nigerians who have been accused of perpetrating fraud in some parts of United States of America (USA).

NAIJAsurf Wears

Dabiri-Erewa made this declaration in a statement she personally signed, a copy of which was made available to DAILY POST.

We reported that the USA authorities, had yesterday released about 80 names of some Nigerians, accused of perpetrating fraud in the country.

But, Dabiri-Erewa while reacting, urged the accused persons to voluntarily turn themselves into the USA authorities in order to clear their names.

Dabiri-Erewa in the statement, however, maintained that failure to do so, the Nigerian government would find means to extradite those accused if relevant international treaties between the two countries are invoked.

Dabiri-Erewa in the statement entitled, “re: arrest of alleged Nigerian fraudsters in various parts of the United’ States OF America”, said that the commission would continue to monitor the case closely.

She said, “The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission is deeply concerned about the news of the court indictment of 80 persons, mainly Nigerians, in various parts of the US, being accused in separate FBI cases of massive email fraud and money laundering.

“Prior to the court indictment of these eighty persons, of which Valentine Iro and Chukwudi Christogunis Igbokwe are lead suspects, Obinwanne Okeke had earlier been arrested in Virginia.

“We acknowledge the fact that accusation does not mean guilt, and we hope that all the accused will be given fair and speedy trial. We also ask those accused in Nigeria to voluntarily turn themselves in, to American authorities to clear their names, without which the Nigerian government should extradite them if relevant international treaties between the two governments are invoked.

“While such actions ultimately have negative effect on the image of the country, the Commission however reiterates as it has always done, that the actions of a few Nigerians involved in criminal activities is not and can never be what the majority of Nigerians represent. We advise and we continuously resist any stereotyping of Nigeria and Nigerians generally.

“The Commission will continue to monitor the case closely.”

FBI releases list of 80 Nigerians arrested for fraud, names lead suspects FBI releases list of 80 Nigerians arrested for fraud, names lead suspects download 2

The United States government has released full details and identities of the 80 suspected fraudsters, with many being Nigerians, arrested in the country.

NAIJAsurf Wears

FBI named Valentine Iro, 31, and Chukwudi Christogunus Igbokwe, 38, both Nigerian citizens as lead suspects, adding that the duo allegedly coordinated with others to launder the funds from victims.

DAILY POST reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in a press statement released in Los Angeles, California on Thursday by US attorney, Nick Hanna announced it has arrested, “many Nigerians”, in an ongoing investigation related to fraud cases.

Hanna said the fraud cases involved suspects colluding with federal and state agents, to dupe unsuspecting victims of their money.

He said a total of 80 suspects “many of whom are from Nigeria”, have been arrested and charged to court with 57 more being hunted globally.

According to a full statement released by the US authorities, the suspects either played major roles in the alleged fraud or acted as accomplices.

The statement read: “This case is part of our ongoing efforts to protect Americans from fraudulent online schemes and to bring to justice those who prey upon American citizens and businesses.

“Today, we have taken a major step to disrupt criminal networks that use BEC schemes, romance scams and other frauds to fleece victims. This indictment sends a message that we will identify perpetrators – no matter where they reside – and we will cut off the flow of ill-gotten gains.”

“Investigations revealed that members of the conspiracy sometimes wired funds to other bank accounts under their control or withdrew same as cash or negotiable instruments such as cashier’s checks.

“The suspects often “used illicit money exchangers to move funds overseas, generally avoiding transferring the funds directly through banking institutions, the indictment alleges.

“To do this, Iro and Igbokwe coordinated the transfer of a victim’s funds from a fraudulent bank account they controlled to US bank accounts belonging to illicit money exchangers.

“Those money exchangers, in turn, used a Nigerian banking application to transfer other funds in naira (₦), the currency of Nigeria, from Nigerian bank accounts they controlled to the Nigerian bank accounts specified by Iro and Igbokwe,” the statement said.

Here are the names of the Nigerian suspects indicted in the alleged fraud case:
