The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has confirmed that contrary to reports, no INEC Ad-hoc staff are missing after some reported cases of violence in the Saturday governorship elections in Kogi state.

In a statement issued by Rotimi Oyekannmi who is the Chief Press Secretary of the Commission on Sunday 17th November 2019, INEC said that they can now confirm that all the 30 INEC ad-hoc staff engaged for the 2019 Kogi Governorship election and posted to polling Units 002, 006 and 013 at Olamaboro III and polling Units 006, 012, 015,016,022 at Imani 1 all in Olamaboro Local Government Area have been accounted for.

“They are safe, sound and back in their respective homes,” the statement said.

The commission, also confirmed that INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu has personally spoken with some of the INEC ad-hoc staff and they confirmed that they are hale and hearty.

These election-day duty staff could not be accounted for initially following the violent attacks by some armed thugs at their respective duty post after the close of polls. The Commission has established that none of them was either injured or killed. They were able to successfully conclude the result collation process before the commotion started,” Rotimi Oyekannmi had said.

He also said that the collated election results at Local Government Level are now being announced at the State Collation Centre at the Commission’s State Office in Lokoja, Kogi State.
