  • I Regretted Ever Working For INEC As My Life Was Put In Danger - Corps Member Gives Shocking Revelation

posted on 25 Feb 2019

I was forced to hand over ballot papers to persons who thumb-printed the papers for a particular party.
A male member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Ashimom Msuguhter, who also served as an ad hoc official of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), in Nasarawa state has discredited the election that took place at his unit on Saturday
Msuguhter said that out of 900 registered voters at the polling unit, the card readers were able to authenticate only 15 persons, while all the others voted without being accredited.

The corps member said in a Facebook post that he was forced to hand over ballot papers to persons who thumb-printed the papers for a particular party.

He said he regretted ever working for INEC, as his life was put in danger.
Msuguhter said;
"This is the last time I'd be doing this bullsh** INEC ad-hoc nonsense. 
"Having disenfranchised myself in the name of ad-hoc staff, I was almost thoroughly beaten. I was cowed into submitting the bulk of ballot papers for mass thumb-printing. 
"Well, I filled the incident form and I hope the result would be cancelled. 
"I'm just angry with everything, most especially for getting involved in the first place. No one forced me, actually. 
"First, this card reader rubbish should be quashed in subsequent elections. The whole aim has been defeated. 
"Out of about 900 registered voters in my unit, the card reader could authenticate only 15. The rest had to do manual accreditation, which opened more room for rigging. Quite sad!"
While calling on the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, to resign, the corps member said the election of Saturday was not as good as that of 2015, which was superintended by Prof. Attahiru Jega.

He said rural areas are known for rigging and this has continued to undermine Nigeria's democracy.

The corps member said;
 "This Prof. Mahmood has to resign immediately after this elections and apologise to Nigerians. The extra one week he got did not prove anything different. In fact, he's made Jega's INEC much more coveted. 
"As of 11am, we had not seen materials, the people were already agitated, thinking we were compromised… They started threatening to descend on us… Luckily, we escaped that. 
"Because we reported late at the polling unit, we were forced to extend voting time till around 7.30pm. 
"When it was dark, these people requested for the remaining ballot papers, that is the tradition of the polling unit not to return ballot papers to INEC… Before we knew it, the atmosphere became very tense. 
"The short of it is that we allowed them to do their wish, but I pray the result is cancelled. 
"The fact is, most of the rigging is done in the rural areas. There, there is no electoral law, anything goes… Party agents do the voting for people and you don’t dare talk. 
"We must penetrate the grassroots if we must overcome this plague. 
"I'm glad I returned safely."

    Here in Kano, we're yet to collect our training allowance! We were given #4000 after the first postponed election, and after the presidential election, we were given #3000. Now we don't know how much they intend to pay us now. They better pay us our #17500 because suffered for it.

    1. So far you have recieved N7,000 according to what you wrote, what is remaining is N9,500

  4. Paying 9000 for the whole trouble and stress we passed through is nonsense, this money is too little. How I wish the whole corps members can boycott the governor election

  5. but osun state paid 4500 for training, 4000 fro feeding and transportation, 13000 for election day honoraria

  6. Anonymous11:48 am

    How much is left after we received 7k from the training allowance in Nasarawa State? Cos I don't even understand at all.

  7. Please oh are we expecting 41000 for our last payment? For batch A Corp members?

  8. Rivers received 4500

  9. please is it true that Batch A 2018 is collecting a sum of #41000 for the month of March ? Because we have been paid a good eleven months, which means we only have just one month allowance to collect. So where is #41000 coming from ??
