Delay in the payment of the ad hoc staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission resulted in a protest at the Registration Area Centre of the commission located in the Amuwo-Odofin Nursery and Primary School, Mile 2, Lagos on Saturday.
Some of the ad hoc staff, who spoke to our correspondent, said that they were promised ₦15,000 each before they left the RAC but they had yet to be paid at past 9am.
One of the ad hoc staff who identified himself as Matthew said, “We were told that we would get ₦15,000 before we leave here but they are yet to pay and are even threatening us.”
Meanwhile, voting has commenced at the three polling units inside the school.
