Passing out of corps members will not affect Edo election – INEC
Mr. Nick Dazang, INEC’s Deputy Director in charge of Publicity and Voter Education disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), yesterday, in Abuja.Dazang said the anxiety that the passing out of NYSC members would affect the election rescheduled for Sept. 28 was out of place, as the rescheduled election would be concluded before the passing out ceremony.
He said: “Information available to INEC shows that the various batches of the NYSC will graduate from the scheme in the first week of October and November.“Thus, their graduation does not coincide with the Edo governorship election, re-scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 28, neither does it affect the conduct of the said election.
“Stakeholders are please urged to discountenance the rumours.”Dazang said the commission had the requisite number of trained staff and ad-hoc staff to conduct the election.He urged stakeholders, especially politicians, to give necessary support to the Commission for the success of the election.
