Adebule chides INEC over late arrival at Polling Unit

Says: INEC’s conduct short of voters’ expectations

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos West Senatorial Candidate, Dr Idiat Adebule, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to improve on the logistics surrounding electoral process.

She said the voting process has not been smooth and short of the people’s expectations.

Adebule, who arrived early at the Polling Unit 029 at Iba, was surprised that the INEC officials didn’t turn up until 10:40am.

She appealed to the aggrieved electorate who have been at the centre as early as 7:30am to be patient.

According to the former Lagos State Deputy Governor, the late arrival of the INEC officials caused a lot of apprehension and agitation.

Adebule said: “Majority of voters are more agitated. It has not always been like this. I’ve been voting here for quite a while. The turn out of voters during this election is commendable. It was better than the previous polls. People are eager to vote.

“INEC should tidy up preparation and logistics early enough and be responsive to the people. People have been waiting here from 8am and voting didn’t commence until 11am. The electorate are not happy about it. I’m sure the INEC can improve on this.”
