The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Monday, in Abuja, disclosed that it would not engage adhoc staff in the forthcoming general elections and has therefore, distanced itself from the news making the rounds of plans to recruit adhoc personnel to man the 2019 general elections.
INEC therefore urged the public to disregard online publications that it is recruiting adhoc staff ahead of 2019 elections.
The Commission in its online publication said it was aware of some social media publications telling the public that it would recruit 100,000 adhoc personnel for 2019 general elections, and said that the information in the publications were false and should be ignored.
The Commission stated, “This information is false. The general public should disregard it because INEC is not recruiting at the moment; don’t be swindled”.
The commission has therefore advised the public to contact it for proper information on any issue concerning the electoral process.
