The announcement further stated that voters would be permitted to leave or remain 300 meters away to see the sorting and counting of ballots.

Before the polls, all ad hoc workers hired to help the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in conducting the next general election will take an oath of neutrality.

According to reports, INEC Chairman Prof Mahmood Yakubu made the announcement while visiting ongoing training for Supervisory Presiding Officers on Saturday.

According to him, the commission is focused on conducting one of the best elections in Nigerian history, thus the integrity of polling officers has a significant impact on election outcomes, whether favorable or negative.

The INEC chief stated that ad hoc employees owed no allegiance to any political party or candidate, but rather to the citizens, and hence must remain neutral.

Yakubu stated that ad hoc employees were carefully recruited for the exercise, adding that they would monitor those who would perform the election, making their job essential.


He said, “You are going to supervise the Presiding Officers who are actually going to conduct the elections in all the polling units for Nigeria.

“It is important to bear in mind your commitment to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and what counts most is your integrity as Presiding Supervisory Officers.

“We will make sure that the process is what we say it should be so that the choice made by Nigerians determines who becomes what at whatever level.”
