Due to incompetence and a careless attitude we have fired some ad hoc staff members - INEC

Incompetence and a careless attitude were evident during the Feb. 25 presidential and national assembly elections, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which announced that it had fired some ad hoc staff members.

According to Prof. Muhammad Bashar, the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner for Jigawa, the ad-hoc workers were disengaged after being re-screened following the elections on February 25 to identify those who were unable to perform their responsibilities effectively and were swiftly replaced before the March 18 election.

In order to debate the level of the Commission's readiness in advance of the state's governorship and state assembly elections on Saturday, Prof. Bashar made this statement at a media interactive session on Friday in Dutse.

The REC was unable to provide a precise count of the ad hoc staff who were impacted by the exercise, though.

He claimed that INEC took proactive steps to resolve problems and glitches that occurred during the election on February 25.

He claimed that in order to ensure a smooth voting process, 4,522 Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS), sensitive and non-sensetive materials had been distributed to the state's 27 local government areas.
