Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Oyo State has recalled the electoral officer of Itesiwaju Local Government Area, Mr Vincent Adelodun for absenteeism.
This is contained in a statement in Ibadan by the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Oyo State, Mr, Mutiu Agboke.
He said the electoral officer was in the habit of absenting himself from office without permission, thereby jeopardizing the ongoing continuous voters registration in the local government.
Mr Agboke then directed the assistant electoral officer in charge of electoral operations in the local government, Mr Sunday Adenekan to act as electoral officer pending the appointment of a substantive officer.
He equally warned all members of staff of the commission in Oyo State of similar or even worse punishments, if they failed to accord their duties the required commitment and dedication.
