Some group of mobs has attempted to barricade the convey of Adhoc staff from the Cross River State INEC headquarter Calabar to their Local Government Area of posting demanding to know why their names were not included in the new list.

The uproar started after the Residential Electoral Commissioner addressed members of the Press of the Commission’s preparedness to conduct free, fair, credible and all inclusive election tomorrow.

According to one of the aggrieved who spoke in anonymity to this reporter, she narrated that “it started when some group of Adhoc staff whose names were removed from the new list started with chanting ‘we no go gree, we no go gree pay us our money, we no go gree!!’ chanting in front of the Commission as the REC was still moving around Coordinating the process, when the crowd became uncoordinated there was intervention by the Security Agents to calm the situation” she said.

Another said, “I spent my money to travel last week, suffer on the road, no food to eat and no place to sleep, now they are saying my name is not out, its not fair is not fair. I no go gree, INEC most pay me my money”. He exclaimed.

Though calmness had being restored. But as at the time of filing this report so far only few of the buses had move while some adhoc staff going to places like Obudu, Obanliku and other interior LGA’S are yet to move.
