Six out of the 26 Directors in the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters survived the ongoing shakeup in the commission.


A dependable source at the INEC headquarters told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Wednesday that the commission had 67 directors nationwide.

The source said that the affected directors were either retired or redeployed and assigned to lower offices.

The source pointed out that the exercise was aimed at repositioning the commission to meet the emerging challenges.

According to the source, some of the affected directors with two years left in service are advised to retire with full entitlements or be redeployed to lower offices.

The source said some of the directors accepted the options while some rejected it and threatened court action.

Meanwhile, April 12, has been slated as the handing over date, the source said.
