    The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it would make use of 10,500 corps members for the poll and it is partnering with the European Centre for Electoral Support (ECES) for the training of staff that will be used for the July 14, 2018, governorship election in Ekiti State, Daily Trust reports.

    The commission also has assured Nigerians that it would not allow anybody or political party to truncate the exercise.

    The National Commissioner in charge of Ekiti, Oyo and Osun states, Prince Adedeji Soyebi, said the training to be conducted by Election Monitoring and Support Centre (EMSC) was to get them acquainted with modern and digitalised electoral process involved, the news site continued.

    INEC also said the members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in Ekiti will serve as electoral officers in the election, describing the poll as a critical national assignment that was a statutory obligation of any corps member.

    INEC also said "some staff and students of some federal institutions in the state would be deployed to make up for the shortfall recorded in the number of NYSC required to conduct the election, saying this was not an attempt to vitiate or compromise the integrity of the election", the news site added.

    The INEC boss praised ECES for the workshop and for taking interest in those things that would boost the integrity of Nigeria’s elections.
