EDO 2020: INEC TO DEPLOY 20,000 AD-HOC STAFF
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has said it would deploy no fewer than 20,000 ad-hoc staff for the conduct of the September 19 governorship poll in Edo State.
Professor Bolade Eyinla, the Technical Advisor to INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, said this during a virtual meeting with journalists in Edo organised by the International Press Council, IPC, on the role of journalists in Edo election.
Eyinla said the recruitment of the 20,000 ad-hoc staff would be done through INEC’s portal which he said had been opened. He said that National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, members serving in Edo would constitute a larger percentage of the number of the ad-hoc staff, adding that the rest would be selected from the INEC ad-hoc recruitment portal.
