INEC postpones governorship, assembly election in 10 Lagos polling units

By Dennis Erezi

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed governorship and state assembly elections in 10 polling units in the Victoria Garden City (VGC) around the Lekki area of Lagos State.

Some of the polling units affected include PU 032,033, 119 -124.

INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Segun Agbaje made the announcement while speaking to journalists.

According to him, corps members deployed as ad hoc staff on Saturday were hesitant to enter the VGC estate as they alleged that they were held hostage in the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections.

He said the commission’s ad hoc staff set up voting materials in front of the estate on Saturday but the estate residents claimed that hoodlums might disrupt the process, so they did not feel secure and could not cast their votes.

He said the situation was difficult for security agents to contain hence he and his team had to come to the area.

“After due consultation and further directive from the national headquarters that we should remobilise here tomorrow (Sunday) morning by 08:30am to conduct the elections. By 08:30am tomorrow (Sunday), we will reconvene here,” Agbaje said.

The governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Congress (ADC), Tunde Doherty, whose polling unit is in the VGC said the situation is unfortunate.
