Anambra Polls: INEC Reacts to Mass Resignation Of Ad-hoc Officials

The Independent National Electoral Commission has broken its silence over reports of mass resignation of ad-hoc officials in Anambra.

This is ahead of the November 6 governorship election in the state.
INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Anambra State, Nwachukwu Orji in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Awka said the report is false.
“INEC is still in the process of recruiting the adhoc workers, in fact we just finished the last training before this false report.
“As the head of the commission in Anambra, I am telling you authoritatively that we have more than enough manpower for the conduct of the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra,” he said.
The INEC official explained that none of the adhoc workers being recruited had been given engagement letter.
“If we have not issued letters to them, how then can any of them resign?” he wondered.
Orji said it was unfair for the mass media to be aiding publications capable of causing more tension in the polity.
He said that a lot of people in the country were looking for work to do so as to improve their lives, adding that it was bad to publish stories capable of frightening the poor masses.
“Taking INEC jobs during elections has been one means for people who do not have permanent jobs to earn little money. Publishing negative report that will scare them is so bad,” Orji said.
