The discrepancy came as a result of the Access Bank Pay Day Loan earlier collected by the majority of the personnel which was deducted by the bank as soon as the money entered their accounts, even though some of them claimed ignorant of the loan. The Commandant General has also asked those paid lesser than the N15,000 without collecting loans from the bank to come up with proofs.”He said as soon as evidence is provided by the affected personnel complaining, ”their money would be paid”.“Additionally, the CG provided food for every member of the Corps in every polling units across the 36 states including the FCT during the exercise as a way of boosting their morale. It is on record that the professional conducts of the Corps’ personnel during the elections were applauded by all the stakeholders in election monitoring, Civil Society Organisations, Foreign and Local Observers as well as other sister agencies,” he said.
