The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it would exclude any of its officials under bribery probe from participating in electoral duties.
It was gathered that some Residential Electoral Commissioners have been accused of receiving bribes.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Chairman of INEC, Rotimi Oyekanmi said this on Monday in Abuja.
Oyekanmi said none of the indicted officials will participate in the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State.
Oyekanmi said; “We have made it clear to them that none of those whose names appeared on the list sent by the EFCC would be involved in any electoral duty.
“Using them will send a wrong signal to the people about our integrity and all that.
“Though these people have yet to be indicted and they remain innocent until proved guilty, we have to safeguard the integrity of the commission as well.
“That is why we have placed embargo on them concerning electoral duties. There are other jobs they could do at the commission, but not electoral duty.”
