Computer Professional (Regulations Council) of Nigeria (CPN) has postponed the election of new members of the executives.

This is contrary to report by an online news medium which claimed that the election has been conducted and concluded.

The Council in a statement made available to TechEconomy.ng as signed by the Registrar and Secretary to the Council, Muhammad Bello Aliyu, said that no new President/Chairman of the Council has been elected as wrongly claimed by the news platform.

Meanwhile, two candidates are vying for the post of the President/Chairman In-Council. They are:

  1. Mr. Kole Jagun and
  2. Prof. Afolayan Obiniyi.

Although, the election was earlier scheduled to hold during the recent CPN IT Assembly/AGM 2021, however, Aliyu, said that the news that a candidate has been elected was false as the election has not even held.

The statement reads:

“The atte​​ntion of the Computer Professionals (Registration Council of Nigeria) (CPN) has been drawn to news in an online media, declaring one of the candidates for the post of President/Chairman of Council as the winner of the election that has not been held.

“Council wishes to state unequivocally that this information is false as the election has not even held.

“Members of the Information Technology community and the general public are enjoined to please disregard the information.

“The election to fill the vacant position of the President/Chairman will be conducted in accordance with best practices, and a winner would be announced by the Committee of Council saddled with that responsibility”, he said.

TechEconomy.ng gathered that the election will now hold on May 6, 2021.
