Voters at Ikpoba Okha in Local Government Council in Edo, Ward 1, pilling units 13 to 16 have expressed worries over non-availability of voting materials at the centre as at 10.00 am.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that voters started trooping into the polling units as early at 6:30am while security personnel started arriving the centres by 8:35am
The electorate later resorted to a prayer session asking God to take charge of the political and economic situation in the country.
Mrs Mary Ofure, who spoke to NAN said the delay in the arrival of elections materials at the polling was cause for concern
“They don’t keep to time. I only washed my face and came on time hoping that I will vote early and go home.
“I want to go home and return later in the day’’, she said.
Another voter, Mr Paul Osazee said: “I had to travel down to this area yesterday so that I can vote on time. We don’t know who we are to report this delay to.
“People are already getting frustrated, especially those who came very early.
Another voter who spoke on the condition of anonymity said: “I am ready to wait till I vote today. But the availability of materials is not good for the process.” (NAN)
