Bayelsa Governorship Election: INEC Mobilises 8,000 Staff



The Resident Electoral Commissioner  (REC) for Bayelsa state, Mr Baritor Kpagih made this known in an interview he had in the state capital, Yenagoa with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) today Saturday, November 28.
The state REC said: “We will involve ad hoc staff, more than 8, 000 of them will be recruited; definitely in election period, most of our permanent staff are always involved.

“The ad hoc staff have been trained on what they should be doing while on duty; some of them were trained at the local government area headquarters.
“INEC in Bayelsa is working with the electoral guidelines and we will continue to do our best in ensuring that the governorship election in the state is succesful,’’
One National Youth Service corps member who will particpate in the Bayelsa governorship election, Miss Chinelo Okafor said: “During the training we were taught so many things, I believe we are going to ensure the most credible and acceptable election.’’
As exchange of words continues between the PDP and APC towards the December 5 polls, the APC in the state noted that the most worrisome mischief employed by the ruling PDP is exchanging the PVCs of the innocent rural dwellers for a paltry one thousand naira.
