Anambra: INEC reacts to alleged mass resignation of ad-hoc staff over IPOB

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has refuted reports that its ad-hoc staff resigned over threats by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Nwachukwu Orji, INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in Anambra State, said the Commission is still looking for ad-hoc staff members.

According to reports, INEC’s ad-hoc personnel were fired en masse due to threats from IPOB ahead of the state’s governorship poll.

Orji, on the other hand, dismissed such stories as bogus and devoid of substance.

“INEC is still in the process of recruiting Adhoc staff, in fact, we just ended Adhoc training before this bogus allegation,” Orji told the Nigerian News Agency, NAN.

“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.

Anambra 2021 Governorship election is slated for November 6.
