Mr Baritor Kpagih, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, stated this in an interview in Yenagoa on Saturday.
He said that the commission’s permanent staff would also be actively involved in the conduct of the election.
“We will involve ad hoc staff, more than 8, 000 of them will be recruited; definitely in election period, most of our permanent staff are always involved.
“The ad hoc staff have been trained on what they should be doing while on duty; some of them were trained at the local government area headquarters.
“INEC in Bayelsa is working with the electoral guidelines and we will continue to do our best in ensuring that the governorship election in the state is succesful,’’ he said.
