Voters in Oshodi Isolo Local Government Area, Ago Palace way, Okota PU13, on Saturday decried the non-provision of ink at the polling unit.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the voters said they came as early as 6:30 a.m to vote, but now disappointed because they will wait for more hours since there is no ink.
A voter, Mr Chukwuemeka Okafor, said it was a calculated attempt to disenfranchise the voters.
According to Okafor, there is usually an excuse or the other in Ago Palace Way unit during any election as a way to delay or disenfranchise accredited voters.
“ In this Ago Palace Way unit, there will always be one reason or the other for voters not to vote, there is need for measures to be taken to correct this,’’ he said.
Another voter, Mrs Jacinta Ibekwe, said it would soon be time to round off the election and the hours lost would not be made up.
Ibekwe stressed that INEC officials ought not to forget anything on a day like this.
Also, Mr Edwin Akachukwu, another voter said that he would not use improvised ink as INEC officials planned, until it was authorised.
“INEC said they can improvised but I will not believe them until they confirmed from a superior that they can use it’’, he added.
However, NAN reports that though INEC officials arrived late, the people are conducting the exercise peacefully and there is no presence of security officials. (NAN)
