The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it identified 46 heads of departments and 140 electoral officers for immediate redeployment.
The chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, revealed this in a statement Friday.
He stated that the deployment of staff across the country was to ensure efficient and optimal performance.
“The affected members of staff are either serving in their states of origin or have served for between 10 and 32 years in the same state.
“The commission considers this development as unhealthy for the sensitive responsibilities they discharge,” Okoye stated.
He said that in line with the commission’s existing posting policy, henceforth no head of department or electoral officer shall serve in his/her state of origin.
“Furthermore, no staff shall serve for more than two electoral cycles in the same duty post. Consequently, the commission has identified 186 staff for immediate redeployment,” he added.
He said the redeployed staff would have to complete the handing and taking over not later than March 9.
He added that the exercise was ongoing and would extend to other categories of staff in the commission
