The Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Adamawa state chapter  have raised alarm thereby  accusing  the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of conniving with the ruling APC to recruit ad-hoc staff  for the forthcoming general elections in Adamawa State.

 IPAC raised the alarm in Yola  alleging that the electoral umpire is making desperate moves to rig the poll in favor of the ruling All Progressives Congress

Barrister Tahir Shehu, IPAC Chairman of the Adamawa state chapter said it has come to their notice that political officer holders in the APC government are submitting lists of ad-hoc staff, for the conduct of the 2019 general elections.

Tahir, who doubles as Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said he was reacting to information at his disposal, that the APC had allegedly concluded arrangement to recruit most of the adhoc staff for the conduct of the forthcoming elections.

He however called on President Muhammadu Buhari, the chairman of INEC, Prof. Yakubu Mohammed to call the Adamawa State resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), to order, stressing that he  should not to be allowed to plunge the state into chaos.

 He further said INEC should quickly do everything possible to  provide a level playing ground to all.

But Kashim Gaidam, Resident Electoral commissioner  Adamawa State, reacted by saying  INEC  does  not entertain to  unspecified allegations.

He further said if he (Tahir Shehu) has a genuine allegation, the onus is on him to be specific and come forward and name who the INEC official is and from which local government, so that INEC can take the appropriate, action; else politicians should stop  unnecessary heating up of the polity.

Also reacting, Ahmed Lawan, Organizing Secretary of Adamawa APC, dismissed
the allegations, saying the PDP is already jittery of losing the 2019 elections and is hiding under the umbrella of IPAC to raise mischievous false alarm.
