THE Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has disclosed that corps members who are disabled will serve as part of Ad-hoc staff during the July 16 gubernatorial election in the State of Osun.
INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Prof. AbdulGaniy Raji made the disclosure while speaking with some newsmen at the commission state headquarters, Osogbo, on Tuesday.
According to Raji, the commission was working closely with the NYSC as it will be making use of the corps members as Ad-hoc staffs during the election.
He said: “What I have in front of me is a list of youth corps members who have disabilities. Out of maybe about 15,000 adhoc staff that we are going to be using for the election, the list is just about 18 and we are assuring that we will admit all these 18 disabled corps members as part of our adhoc staff for the election.
“We are working closely with the NYSC and the Local Government Inspectors and they were the ones who gave us the list. Some of them participated in the just concluded Continuous Voter Registration”.
Raji admonished those who are yet to collect their Permanent Voter Card to do so by visiting their local government offices to collect them.
