According to Premium Times, the  money was allegedly given to them by the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.

The protest which they tagged ‘no money, no work’ was targeted at compelling the INEC staff to pay them before they leave for their polling units.

According to a presiding officer, the money was brought in on Saturday but they refused to share it among the staff.

While addressing the agitated ad-hoc staff, an INEC staff whose name could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report stated that each of them will be given N10,000.

However, the ad-hoc staff turned down the offer and demanded that they should be paid N40,000 while some of them said N20,000.

“Ogudu collected N10,000 but that’s Ogudu, this is Ikosi, no money, no work,” a presiding officer said while addressing his colleagues.
