Massive turnout of voters in Saturday’s Kogi poll

THE ongoing governorship election in Kogi has recorded mass turnout of voters in most polling units in Lokoja.

Our correspondent who went round polling units in Lokoja, also reports that the election witnessed early arrival of officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and voting materials.

In polling unit 067 ward A, Kogi Hotel Tourism Board, accreditation of voters and voting started at 8.30 a.m., as most voters were already on queue before accreditation time.

The situation was also the same at polling unit 065 ward A Saron Gari, where voters were seen taking their turn to vote.

In polling unit 068 ward A, Baptist Plaza, voters conducted themselves peacefully, even without the presence of a security agent at the polling unit.

In polling unit 012 ward A, Crowder Memorial College, there was also massive turnout of voters and the election was hitch-free.

The situation was not much different in other polling units in Lokoja. (Vanguard)
