The Electoral Commission (EC), in a new press statement, has assured electoral officers for the 2020 general elections of payment by the close of April 30, 2021.
According to the EC, it’s working with the Ministry of Finance to ensure that the monies owed them are paid before the end of April. “The Electoral Commission wishes to inform all its 2020 Field Operatives that it is working with the Ministry of Finance to ensure that monies due them are paid by the 30th of April, 2021,” the Electoral Commission said in a statement issued on Tuesday.
This comes off the back of recent outcry by field operatives over delayed payment by the electoral body since December 7, 2020.
The Commission expressed disappointment over delayed payment as it assured field operatives of arrangements being put in place to ensure the timely release of payment for their service.
