There was a minor confusion at Ward F3 Polling Unit 13, Ago Palace Way, Okota, Lagos, as voters were transferred from their polling unit without notice.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that most of the voters were confused as they didn’t know where to vote.
INEC’s presiding officer at the unit, therefore, announced that its register had persons with alphabets A-N on its voters’ list.
According to him, if the voters’ surname do not fall between the stated alphabets, such people cannot vote at the polling unit.
A voter, Akabueze Uzorchukwu, described the development as wickedness.
Uzorchukwu said that he had been at the polling centre since 7.00 a.m., only to discover that the BVAS machine did not recognise his face.
He stated that his name was not even on the registration list, in spite of the fact that he registered at the polling unit.
Another voter, Funmilayo Ogunberu, said that her name was not in the register.
According to her, she does not know the polling centre she has been transferred to.
She faulted INEC for transferring voters without due notice.
Another voter, Miss Faith Isaac, said, however, that she did not register at the polling unit, but was transferred there.
Isaac stated that she received a text message on her phone with the details of where she was transferred to.
She said that most of the voters complaining of not knowing where they had been transferred to did not either have phone numbers, or they are no longer using the numbers they released during registration. (NAN)
