Anambra polls soon to take place on November 6, 2021, raise concerns as reports have shown that over one hundred ad-hoc staff quit their jobs.
The reason for their sudden resignations is due to the fears that members of the Independent People of Biafra, IPOB, would launch an attack official coordinating the election process.
According to a reliable source: “INEC is now short of thousands of ad-hoc staff members due to IPOB instructions. Those who initially signed up have now resigned en-masse.”
It was gathered that there had been inadequate responses from the slated ad-hoc workers selected to carry out registration and voting of electorates in the state.
According to the source, this low turnout is due to the security challenges in the southeast region and the stay-at-home orders issued by the Biafrans in protest against Federal Government.
In May, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had increased the polling units in Anambra State from 4,608 to 5,720, with about 10,000 ad hoc workers required for the governorship poll.
