Lagos State chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC has uncovered plot by the opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, to disrupt the forthcoming senatorial election billed for Saturday, November 5, 2020.
In a statement released by the party Spokesperson, Hon. Seye Oladejo, the PDP has reportedly mobilised hoodlums to take position is some vulnerable areas of Lagos state where the elections is billed to hold, and where they perceived the opposition will not get reasonable vote.
The party however called on security forces to wade into the matter and ensure that every sinister motive by any party will not work.
Read full statement below
Our attention has been drawn to certain developments that are capable of disrupting the by-elections for Lagos East Senatorial district and the Lagos State House of Assembly for Kosofe 2 slated for this Saturday.
The members of APC in the areas where the elections will be conducted have observed the unusual mobilization of hoodlums and miscreants from within and outside the state to disrupt the electoral process in polling areas where the PDP will likely return poor results.
Similarly, arrangements have been concluded to buy votes which negate the provision of the electoral laws.
Our intelligence revealed the conclusion to pay the sum of N5,000 per vote to undermine the process.
Therefore, we are calling on the security agents to be vigilant to arrest any situation that is capable of disrupting the electoral process and INEC to remain impartial and deliver on their responsibility to the nation.
Our members and supporters are hereby enjoined to protect their votes in the best interest of our nascent democracy.
Lagos APC Spokesman.
GTBank suffers mass staff resignation
The IT division at GTBank has suffered a continual decrease in personnel within the last six months. It has caused a significant technical lacuna and work overload for current employees. Reports reaching 1st News have it that GTBank has been slow in promoting its staff; inadvertently triggering a wave of exits into the labour market which had attractive offers for their talent.
The shortage in manpower is bringing about increased workload; and mounting pressure on the remaining IT employees.
One staff said, “I was handling one application then it doubled as a result.”
Another one also: “There’s a particular team where three members left in the space of one month. Now, four people’s responsibilities are being juggled by one person.”
And yet another staff said, “The pressure is crazy. One person is doing three people’s jobs all in the name of efficiency. That’s why our cost to income ratio will always be the lowest in the industry.”
An undisclosed source said the frequent loss of experienced workers without commensurate hiring resulted in gaps in technical capabilities.
He said: “The application I am managing was handled by two people; but my partner has gone to join another team. If I’m leaving now, a new person can’t cram; and get a good grip of everything in my handover note within 3 weeks. We simply need more people on the team!”
This gap is often reflected when there is a service downtime towards the end of the month caused by server overload. During this period, transaction volume increases due to salary payments; and other month-end payments; leading to more pressure on existing resources.
