INEC disowns jobs placement on website

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday disassociated itself from a jobs application announcement placed on its website.
In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Mr. Kayode Idowu , the commission urged the public not to act on the announcement as the process for the recruitment had not been concluded.
He said the restructuring exercise that will determine the commission’s personnel requirements and composition is still on-going, adding that announcement on jobs placement will not be carried out until the exercise has been concluded.
He said: “The attention of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been drawn to a jobs-application announcement that has been sighted on its website. The commission hereby affirms that the announcement and the forms uploaded on the site were in error, because the processes for the recruitment are not yet concluded. Already, the commission has pulled down the said announcement.
“While the commission appreciates the interest of many to make a career in its system, the process of restructuring that will lead to the determination of its personnel requirements and composition is on-going.
“When the time is ripe, the INEC will announce as appropriate and will sufficiently alert the public on this.
“The Commission hereby restates its vision to become one of the best Election Management Bodies in the world through a sustained process of institutionalization and professionalization that will ensure a tradition of credible elections,” he added.
