#NigeriaDecides: Voters lament election delay in Ikorodu

Some voters at polling unit 019, Ita Aro square, Aga/Ijimu ward in Ikorodu, Lagos Sate, have lamented the delay in the commencement of the Presidential and National Assembly elections at the polling unit.

The voters, who spoke with our correspondent, expressed worries that the election officials, who were already behind schedule, had yet to begin the preliminary processes that would precede the voting exercise.

A voter, who identified himself as Ola Makinde, said the delayed arrival of the election officers was becoming a cause for concern.

Makinde said, “They are supposed to be here by now. All the boxes and other election materials should have been arranged by now.”

As of 9:33 am, there was no INEC official in sight, neither were any security officers seen.

Voters, many of whom were aged, were seen sitting on plastic chairs while hemp-smoking hoodlums paraded the venue of the polls, arguing intermittently as voters continued to anticipate the arrival of INEC officials.

The Deputy Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, Funke Akindele, is expected to cast her vote at the polling unit sometime later today.
