Corps members and other ad-hoc workers deployed to serve in the Presidential and National Assembly election before it was postponed early Saturday were stranded in most local government areas of Ondo State.

The ad-hoc workers and corps members complained of lack of amenities in places where they were kept for onward movement to their various units where they were to serve in various capacities.

They lamented that there were no electricity and water while mats provided for them to sleep were not enough.

They also lamented that they were not even informed when the election was postponed.

According to one of the corps members, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had on Friday directed them to report by 3:00pm for briefing and adequate arrangement but only to be kept in the dark.

“I was surprised when they said we should be here a day before the election, by 3:00 pm. There was no light, no water, no security. Later at around 10 pm the INEC staff came with policemen and by 11:00pm, they brought few mats that could not go round everyone, we had to struggle to get mats.
