Politics Anambra Gubernatorial Elections: INEC Recruits 12,000 Adhoc Staff

INEC National Commissioner in charge of Training and Research, Prof. Lai Olurode, said that the commission has recruited 12,000 NYSC members as adhoc staff for the November 16 governorship election in Anambra.

Olurode said that training of the NYSC members had commenced. He added that the use of NYSC members as ad hoc staff was in line with the NYSC management’s pledge to assist INEC in efforts to conduct hitch-free elections in the country.

He said that in the lead-up to the governorship polls in Anambra, the INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, would be in the state next week to address the stakeholders.

Olurode said that due to the fact that Anambra did not have the required number of NYSC members that was required, more corps members were recruited from Delta and Enugu states to make up for the shortfall.

He also said that some NYSC directors were also involved in the exercise.

"Although INEC do not envisage any crisis during the election, the commission had met with the Inter-Agency Committee on Election Security on plans to provide adequate security".

The commission has put in place effective collaboration to ensure the safety and security of the ad hoc staff and all other necessary inputs to promote efficiency and the election’s credibility,’’ Olurode said(NAN)
