INEC, Lagos State Debunked The Rumor Of The Removal Of All Igbo’s And South-South Staff In Lagos.
Lagos State INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr. Olusegun Agbaje debunked the rumor of the removal of all Igbos and South South staff in Lagos State ahead of the forthcoming Governorship and House of Assembly Elections.
According to P. M. , the Lagos State INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr. Olusegun Agbaje reacted to the rumor that “INEC, Lagos State, read with great surprise and concern on the social media in respect of the removal of all Igbos and South South staff in Lagos State from participating as ad hoc staff in the state during the forthcoming Governorship and House of Assembly elections on March 18. It has become imperative to correct the erroneous accusations in some quarters and put the record straight that the Ad hoc staff (Collation Officers) engaged during the Presidential and National Assembly Elections on Feb. 25 in Lagos State were 738 in number, bearing in mind that three elections were held. The forthcoming Governorship and House of Assembly will only require the services of 427 Collation Officers because only two elections are involved. It is pertinent to state unequivocally that members of staff that are Igbos were all returned to work as Collation Officers in the forthcoming elections while SPOs (Supervisory Presiding Officers) maintained their positions.”
