” Some days after the 2023 presidential elections, the ruling party gave all staff of the state $100 Dollars each but, only ICT staff were giving the money, and denied the rest of the staff,.



” The acting REC/Administrative Secretary Mohammed Awwal Mashi is a friend and a University Course Mate to Prof. Mahmood Yakubu and also a close friend and ally to Bashir Wase, the Chief of Staff to the Chairman of the Commission,.

“On 4th August 2023, promotion arrears were credited to our account with huge discrepancies. Grade level 10 step 6 in Kaduna state got N34,000, same grade level and step in FCT got N163,000………. This is evident that we have been deliberately underpaid with step 3 instead of step 6. Concerted effort were made to correct the fraudulent act but suffered a heavy backlash by the management” the petition dated August 8, 2023 read in parts.
