Voting is yet to commence at the polling unit of former president, Goodluck Jonathan in Otuoke, Bayelsa State.

 

As at 10:45 am, Nigeria Info FM can confirm that there are no INEC officials, election materials are yet to arrive and there are no activities at the polling unit which is situated close to the house of the former president.

 

Meanwhile, accreditation and voting is yet to start in units 5, 8 in ward six and units 15, 16, 4, and 6 in ward five in Opolo and Bioboglo communities in Yenagoa Local Government Areas of the State.

 

Correspondent Soibi Oruwari who visited these areas reports that voters turned out early this morning to cast their votes but INEC ad-hoc staff and electoral materials were yet to arrive as at the time of this report.

 

No INEC officials were sited to explain the delay in the exercise.

 

Meanwhile accreditation and voting is taking place at Famghe Unit 10 Ward 6.

 

Our correspondent reports that voters are casting their votes peacefully without hitches and the Smart Card Readers meant to capture voters are working perfectly as at the time of filing in this report.
