Mutiu Agboke, the Independent National Electoral Commission resident electoral commissioner in Osun, on Friday, paid a visit to ad hoc staff at their Registration Area Centres (RACs) camp ahead of Saturday’s election.
Mr Agboke visited CAC Grammar School, Gbodofon, Laro Timehin Grammar School, Asubiaro and CAC Primary School, Gbonmi, all within Osogbo used as INEC RAC camps.
The resident commissioner urged the ad hoc staff, mainly youth corps members, to be well conducted, organised and stick to doing the right thing, being unbiased umpires during the elections.
He also took some time to engage them on what they have been taught, what is expected of them on the election and warning them of the consequences of being biased.
Speaking to journalists after the visit between 9:30 p.m. and 10:20p.m, Mr Agboke explained that the purpose of the visits was to assess the readiness of their ad hoc staff ahead of the election.
He expressed delight at the enthusiasm of the ad hoc staff towards the elections adding that he expected them to perform their duties diligently and encouraged registered voters to come out on Saturday and exercise their civic duty without intimidation.
The INEC official said security had already been put in place to ensure the safety of life and property of residents and also to protect the electorate during tomorrow’s election.
