In its avowed commitment to honest and transparent delivery of the upcoming General Elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has cancelled the entire staff recruitment exercise conducted early this year.
The decision to this effect has been taken after a careful evaluation of INEC institutional and human capacities which has been undertaken with the sole aim of re-positioning the Commission to deliver on its mandate of ensuring free, fair and credible conduct of our future national elections.
However, INEC is deeply touched by this hard decision but which, in the prevailing circumstances, has to be taken as a bold step towards giving Nigerians electoral services that would be a qualitative improvement over past elections.
The Commission is also not unaware of the effects of this decision on the multitude of young Nigerians who promptly responded to its call by applying for placement into the positions advertised.
We regret whatever inconveniences caused our young compatriots who went through the excruciating interview process. However, INEC looks forward to a time when it would soon be convenient to engage more hands to beef up its workforce.
