2023: INEC Launches New Short-code to Fight Fake News

The Independent National Commission (INEC) has launched a new short-code –4623 toward fighting fake news, ahead of Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly Election.

Festus Okoye, INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, said this when he received a donation of Information Technology facilities from Community Life Project (CLP) and the Ford Foundation in Abuja on Thursday.

Okoye said that the short-code was part of INEC Citizens Contact Centre (ICCC) aimed at combating fake news by giving out authentic information to Nigerians.
He appealed to Nigerians to make use of the short code to get authentic information from the commission.

The national commissioner pledged that INEC would continue to open and make information available to the media and members of the public.

“As it has been pointed out that we have launched a short code 4632 which will enable citizens to contact INEC center in real time and they will get response.

“We want to appeal to the media and the citizens to make use of these facilities so that they can get authentic information because we have a lot of misinformation and disinformation all over the place.

“Also, we do not want Nigeria to be confused in relation to electoral processes and electoral procedure,’’ Okoye said.
