The Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] has sacked at least 30 of its personnel who have been enmeshed in the allegation of electoral malpractices across the country during the 2011 general election. This was disclosed by the electoral body in a letter.
Premium Times reports that Sixteen of the dismissed staff were being penalized for getting involved in election-related offences in Anambra state.
Other states involved in the act that led to the sack of the officials, are Imo (3), Edo (1), Zamfara (1), FCT (1), Delta (1), Oyo (2), Rivers (1), Lagos (1), and Osun (2).
Report says a staff at the INEC Headquarters in Abuja was also sacked for allegedly joining some politicians in manipulating election that would have been credible.
The Commission is also prosecuting nine out of its 12 staff apprehended for committing various electoral offences during the governorship elections in six other states.
Out of the 12 offenders , 2 have been discharged and acquitted while one was convicted.
INEC, in a letter to a civil society group, ?Say no Campaign,? in response to a Freedom of Information request, said those sacked committed various inexcusable offences such as refusal to carry out lawful duties and misleading the Commission, misconduct, disappearance with money meant for payment of allowances of ad-hoc staff, withholding ballot papers, manipulation of election results and possession of DDC machines.
Equally listed as offences are allegation of illegal entries in voters registrar and attempt to make use of surplus money.
The letter which was signed by the Secretary to the Commission, Augusta Ogakwu, on July 14 was responding to a request by the civil group in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act.
