The Federal Government has denied the allegation made by Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, that it plans to shut down internet access during the 2019 general elections.

Recall that Governor Wike on Thursday accused the presidency of plans of working with the National Security Adviser, INEC and Internet Service Providers, to shut down internet access during the elections so as to engage in widespread rigging.

In a statement from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), the Federal government denied the allegation, stating it is false and baseless.

A statement signed by ONSA spokesperson, Danjuma Reuben, reads;

“The Office wishes to advise the general public to disregard the allegation, which is disinformation. This Office wishes to state that the internet and associated communications infrastructure are major components of the Critical National Information Infrastructure (CNII), which ONSA is mandated to ensure its security.”
