INEC conducting verification of ad-hoc staff

Nwatarali said that the verification became imperative because the bank details submitted by some ad hoc staff did not tally with the names they used for the work.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) commission is currently conducting verification of the 21,000 ad hoc staff who served in various capacities during the general elections in March and April in Anambra.

The state's Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr Edwin Nwatarali, said this on Thursday in Awka while speaking with journalists.

He said the development made it impossible to pay them unless the discrepancies were rectified.

“Some ad hoc workers who were to be paid, have different bank details submitted to the commission and used different names to work; therefore, the discrepancy will not allow the commission to pay, unless it is ratified.'’

The REC said clarification on the reason for the delay in their payment became necessary due to the attitude of some of the ad hoc who besieged the commission's office on Wednesday, demanding payment for the work they did during the last general polls.
