LAFIA—–AS early as 6am over 500 out of 1,143 voters had lined up at governor Umaru Tanko Almakura polling unit waiting to be accredited.
Materials and the INEC adhoc staff were not seen until 8.30 when they arrived the polling units.
Our correspondent who visited some of the polling stations observed that most of voters were seen waiting endlessly without any official of the commission to kick start the process.
At Kofa Gayam open space in Gayam ward, Lafia local government where governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura and his wife Dr Mairo Almakura are to vote, no INEC staff was seen until about 9am.
Some of the prospective voters lamented the late arrival of officials and materials wondering what could have been responsible for the delay after postponement and several assurances by the INEC.
