INEC CONDUCTS ASSESSMENT TEST FOR STAFF IN AKWA IBOM



The Independent National Electoral 
Commission (INEC) in
Akwa Ibom State 
Organised an electoral 
assessment test for 
electoral officers and 
assistant electoral 
officers across the 31 
Local Government 
Areas of the state.

The state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mike Igini, who supervised the test at the federal secretariat conference hall in Uyo, the capital said that the training is meant to equip the electoral officers with the required skills and exposure to guarantee optimum performance during the elections.



According to Igini, the officers will in turn train other ad hoc staff of the commission to ensure strict adherence to the guidelines of the commission, as well as a hitch-free implementation of the 2019election 

While stating that most of the ad hoc staff will be drawn from the National Youth Corps (NYSC), the REC noted that the commission needs more staff in addition to the 543 already deployed in the state.
This comes a day after a Court of Appeal sitting in Benin City, the Edo State capital ordered the Commission to ensure that inmates are included on the National Voters’ Register.
