HOW CAN INEC BE BROKE?

INEC- the Independent National Electoral Commission is broke and might not be able to pay its staffs in few months to come. In a statement made by the commission boss on Wednesday in Abuja, he told the visiting members of the House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters, led by its chairman, Mr. Jerry Manwe, that it was broke and might not be able to pay staff salaries, as from next month.

He therefore called on the legislators to quickly intervene and save the situation to avoid frustrating the commission’s aspiration of conducting the 2015 general elections in line with international best practices.I cannot help but laugh over this matter..this is an agency under our government and lots of money is usually pumped into the election...
