INEC Ad-hoc Staff protest over Non payment of Allowances

www.odogwublog.com reports that Adhoc staff recruited by the Independent National Electoral Commission for the November eighteen 2017 Anambra State governorship election last year on Monday protested non- payment of their allowances in front of the INEC Headquarters Awka.
The protesters who besieged the state INEC headquarters Awka carried placards with various inscriptions.
Some of the inscriptions carried by the protesters read "INEC is wicked" “INEC pay us our allowances”, "INEC stop defrauding and shortchanging us” among others.

One of the aggrieved protesters Mr. Raluchukwu Obikwelu who said that he worked as an Assistant Presiding Officer at Dunukofia Local Government area during the election regretted that INEC has not paid him and others any money since the November eighteen governorship election in the state, describing it as an art of wickedness and fraud.

Mr. Obikwelu further revealed that INEC has paid his supervisory presiding officer and abandoned most of them to their fate, adding that he has severally spent huge amounts of money transporting himself from his place to Awka to complain about the issue.

Another protester, Miss Jacinta Ezulike who worked at Nnewi North while narrating her ordeal said that the Commission has subjected them to series of inhuman treatment, calling on the National Headquarters of the Commission to compel their office in the state to pay their allowances.

Efforts to speak to the Public Relations Officer of the Commission Mr. Leo Nkedife or any senior official of INEC to get their side of the story proved abortive as they declined giving information on the issue.
