Federal Government Debunks Allegations To Shut Down Internet Access Over Polls.


The Federal Government has denied the allegation making the rounds in the
media that it had connived with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to work with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the country to shut down Internet access during the forthcoming general elections.

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State had yesterday alleged that the Federal Government, through the Office of the National Security Adviser, (NSA) had directed the INEC to work with Internet service providers to shutdown Internet access during the elections.

Reacting to the allegation, Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) in a statement signed yesterday in Abuja by the Spokesman, Danjuma Reuben, said the office works with relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of Government in making continuous efforts to protect them and improve service delivery to Nigerians, noting that every single national security platform in the country rides on the same Internet to function.
