The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday postponed governorship and state assembly elections in 10 polling units in the Victoria Garden City (VGC) around the Lekki area of the state over insecurity.
INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Segun Agbaje who made the announcement when he addressed journalists at the VGC said they will conduct the election today.
Agbaje said corps members deployed as ad hoc staff were hesitant to enter the VGC estate as they alleged that they were held hostage in the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections.
According to him, the commission’s ad hoc staff set up voting materials in front of the estate yesterday but the estate residents claimed that hoodlums might disrupt the process, so they did not feel secure and could not cast their votes.
“By 08:30am tomorrow (Sunday), we will reconvene here,” he said
