NIGERIA DECIDES: INEC CONDUCTS RESCHEDULED ELECTION IN POLLING UNITS ACROSS NDUME
Chinwe Ugele, Umuahia.
Elections are about now going on simultaneously in all the wards in Ndume after the exercise failed to hold in the area on Saturday.
The electorate in the ward had discovered some irregularities arising from incomplete result sheets and ballot papers and went on to demand they be completed before the commencement of the polls.
The Independent National Electoral commission could not produce the shortfall till late Saturday night, hence the rescheduling of the polls.
However, by 10.20am on Sunday, officials of the commission were at the affected polling units to carry out their duties.
Even though the spirit of the voters appeared to have been dampened by the disappointment of the previous day, some dogged electorate still came out in their numbers to cast their votes.
Despite being a Sunday, voters are gradually moving to the units.
The exercise was at the time of visiting some of the units, going on smoothly,
