The Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission, (LASIEC) has announced plans to commence the payment of ad-hoc staff that coordinated the July, 22nd, local government poll in Lagos State.
The Commission in a text to the 45,000 beneficiaries which includes Senior Polling Officers (SPO), Polling Officers (PO) and Polling Clerks (PC), informed them to forward their bank details to firstname.lastname@example.org for payment of remuneration due to them, for having served in over 450 wards in the 20 local government and 37 LCDAs in Lagos state where election was conducted.
The LASIEC Public Relations Officer, (PRO) Mr. Olatunde said, “it is meant to speed up the process of payment and that asking the ad-hoc staff to converge at their various local government will generate a lot of controversies and unnecessary stress.”
Olatunde, who apologized for the delay in the payment of the workers, said the commission have put in place a mechanism to help make the process simple and stress free.
According to the Permanent Secretary directive, the bank details are to be made available on or before Friday, to enable the payment of these ad-hoc personnel next week.
