The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the ongoing governorship and state assembly elections in 10 Lagos polling units in Victoria Garden City (VGC), Eti-Osa Lacal Government Area of the State.
Mr Olusegun Agbaje, INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Lagos was reported to have said the ad-hoc staff deployed in the area refused to carry out their duties there because of an experience they had during the Presidential Poll. His words:
“We have eight polling units here with 6,024 registered voters and out of which 5,624 people have their PVCs,” he stated, adding that two other polling units at the estate’s main gate were also affected.
