Video: INEC ad-hoc staff seize materials, refuse to start voting until they are paid

Some ad-hoc staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Edo state have seized some election materials due to lack of payment of their stipend.

The workers who were assigned to Ivbiyneza Primary School RAC, in Ikpabo-Okha LGA told AIT that INEC have refused to pay them their stipend despite the money made available for the election exercise.

Some voters who were also interviewed said they have been waiting at various polling units since morning, and the staff insist that the election won’t take place in the area until they are paid.
