INEC Begs ASUU For Help Ahead Of Presidential Elections

INEC has called on the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to allow its members participate as Collation and Returning Officers in this year’s general elections.

Yakubu, who made the call during a consultative meeting he held with ASUU in Gwagwalada, Abuja, yesterday, also appealed to the union to consider election as an essential service to the nation and such, maintain collaborative relationship that would play critical role in the electoral process.

He stated: “For some time now, INEC has relied on the universities for the critical mass election duty staff and success of general elections. ASUU has collaborated with the commission in vetting the list of its members engaged as Collation and Returning officers.

“Within the time available, it would be difficult to identity, recruit and train thousands of alternative Collation and Returning Officers needed for the elections.
“The commission would like to appeal to ASUU to consider election as an essential service to the nation and continue with the existing collaboration with INEC. Allow your members to participate as Collation and Returning Officers for the general elections.”

Responding, National President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, said the union was committed to ensuring the success and credibility of the general elections.

He maintained that the union would not disrupt the electoral process during the elections, assuring that the strike would not hinder community service to the country.
