Low Turnout Greets Guber Poll In Itire Ikate, Lawanson, Others

The Gubernatorial and the State Assembly elections in Itire Ikate, Lawanson, Cole Street have so far recorded low turnout of voters.

In Polling Unit 037, Muniru Baruwa, in Lawanson, as at 9:25 am, the Independent National Electoral Commission officials, were relaxed, as few voters were seen at the polling boot.

In Anjorin polling unit, still in Lawanson, though voting started late as at the time of filing this report, Newsbreak observed that voters numbering just eight were seen casting their votes.

 The situation was slightly different at Aleje polling unit, also in Itire-Ikate LCDA, as little turnout of voters were recorded. 

One of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials who chose to be anonymous told Newsbreak that “it’s surprising why people have not come out to vote. The turnout has not been impressive because we are just here doing nothing as we await voters.”

As at 9:38am, an official of the Department of the State Security, who was supposed to man the polling unit was just resuming her duty post.
