Media reports that the Indepedent Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, Professor Maurice Iwu lied about his academic credentials is troubling. An electoral commission is a sensitive institution expected to be led by people with the highest degree of integrity and honesty. This is the reason why allegations that Professor Iwu lied about part of his academic qualifications must be urgently unravelled. The elections cannot be supervised by someone who is generally perceived as a dishonest person.
