The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has postponed the governorship and State Assembly elections in 10 polling units in the Victoria Garden City (VGC) to Sunday, March 19, 2023.
The commission’s Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Lagos Segun Agbaje said that INEC’s ad hoc staff had set up voting materials but the estate residents claimed that hoodlums might disrupt the process, so they did not feel secure to cast their votes.
Elections did not also go as planned in the Asari-Toru LGA of Rivers state due to the insistence of voters to sight electoral officers and collation officers.
It is understood that there was a heated disagreement at the RAC Center in Buguma, over the absence of INEC EOs and result sheets.
Security agents had to intervene as INEC decided to postpone the election till further notice.
In Plateau, elections were also moved to Sunday, March 19, 2023, in Butura ward in Bokkos LGA due to liogistics problems.
INEC REC in Plateau, Oliver Agundu said that election materials such as ballot papers meant for the ward were taken to another LGA in error.
