There was a scramble at the Ibadan North West nearby government secretariat at around 8 a.m. as recently selected specially appointed staff mixed to get their postings to various surveying units.
As indicated by authorities at the scene, a great number of staff members neglected to turn up for the activity compelling the neighborhood government to look for new ones.
The official who distinguished himself as Olusegun said the poor turn out was because of fears with respect to the impromptu staff.
“We have been conveying new specially appointed staff since yesterday,” he said.
“We can’t tell what number of we have sent up until this point, however we needed to employ them since we don’t have enough to man the surveying units.”
It was, however, uncertain if the newly recruited staff had the requisite training to handle the challenges of the election or whether they had gone through the necessary security screening.
That the ad hoc staff had just been deployed suggested that some polling units would be starting late.
