The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, is set to resume at the Blantyre office annex Abuja.
INEC in a statement issued by its National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr. Festus Okoye, hinted that the office annex will be decontaminated preparatory to resumption.
However, some categories of the staff were exempted because of the COVID-19 pandemic and in order to observe the protocols set by Presidential Task Force to curtail its spread.
The statement reads in part, “ The Directors and other designated staff of the various departments will resume at the national headquarters on Wednesday 13, May 2020 after the decontamination of the premises and provision of necessary amenities as outlined in this statement.
“Only staff below 58 years of age with no serious underlying health issues will resume, while pregnant women, nursing mothers and all other staff with underlying health conditions should remain at home for the time being.”
On Edo and Ondo governorship Elections, the Commission said it’s getting set to ramp up the activities in the two states.
