INEC recruits ad hoc staff on election day
There was a shortfall of INEC ad hoc staff in Ibadan North West following the refusal of some staff used for last weekend to show up for today’s election.
As at 8 am, the officials of the electoral body were seen recruiting new staff and deploying them without any training.
According to officials at the venue, a good number of staff failed to turn up for the exercise forcing the LGA to seek for new ones.
The official who identified himself as Olusegun, said the poor turn out was due to fears on the part of the ad hoc staff.
“We have been deploying new ad hoc staff since yesterday,” he said.
“We cannot tell how many we have deployed so far, but we had to hire them because we don’t have enough to man the polling units,” Olusegun said.
