The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is ready to reschedule elections in some parts of Lagos, Rivers and Anambra.

The electoral commission specifically said elections in Akuku Toru and Bonny local government areas of Rivers state, as well as some parts of Lagos and Anambra, would be conducted on a later date, saying mostly affected is the contest for the federal legislative seats.

INEC Commissioner and chairman of its Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, while giving an update on the ongoing elections, said where the malfunctioning of smart card readers were not resolved before the closing of elections, voting will continue the next day. He said,

“We received reports of violence and ballot box snatching which took place in Akokotoro and Bonny LGAs in Rivers State; and some parts of Lagos and Anambra states.

“We are waiting for the reports, we have told the Resident Electoral Commissioners in the states to submit reports. So long as the poll is didn’t commence, it is assumed that there was no voting.

“So, elections in these areas, especially in areas related to the House of Representatives and Senate didn’t take place and the date for the election will be decided later after we receive reports from INEC officials on ground.”
