Supply your income, expenditure on time, Omirhobo tasks INEC
A lawyer, Chief Malcolm Omirhobo, has charged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to supply him with its income and expenditures, which he requested from the Commission, within seven days.
The lawyer made the charge in a letter, which he sent to INEC, following the Commission’s response to his earlier request, which merely acknowledged receipt and stated that it would respond as soon as possible.
Omirhobo stressed that the Commission by law is required to, after the end of each financial year, keep proper accounts and records in respect of each financial year and cause its accounts to be audited.
“Consequently, we request that you furnish us without any further delay, a Certified True Copies of your Commission’s total income and expenditure with her Audited Financial Statement of Accounts for the period of January 1, 2015 to the end of the financial year of 2021, in line with our request within seven days of your receipt of this letter, failing which we shall be approaching the Court for redress.
“We also expect to receive that of the period between January 1, 2022 and February 29, 2023 on/or before March 31, 2023, failing which we shall be approaching the Court to compel you to do the needful as required by law,” Omirhobo said.
