When it was reported that Bimbo Akintola was going to be an celebrity election observer at the coming elections, many observers were a bit taken back at the development on the grounds that why would the agency directing the election process of the country give preference to any celebrity during the elections.

As the celebrities have been seen with many aspirants, the Independent National Electoral Committee was asked why such a development would be permitted, and the response was quite a shocker. The INEC has denied the issuance of any 'Celebrity Election Observer' card stating that it was not an accredited election observer card and the displayed one making the rounds was not from INEC.

When Nollywoodgists called the INEC number displayed on the their Twitter handle to investigate the 'unaccredited' celebrity card, the customer care agent who spoke said, "For now I do not have anything to say about this. Rather I will transfer your issue to the appropriate unit that will handle it and they will give you a feedback, sir

However, the actress has displayed another INEC card which she called 'official' and having the 'Election Observer Assistant' and her details boldly printed on it.

Upon further investigations, when Nollywoodgists put a call to her, her personal assistant, Lucy, replied that her boss was in a meeting and busy at the moment.

She said, "She is not available for now because you know it is the election week. Next week you can call back. I will tell her you called. She is in a meeting right now."

Many ways to go but i can't find one.
