INEC Postpones Elections In 10 Lagos Polling Units by TheDemola: 4:05pm On Mar 18, 2023
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed Saturday’s governorship and state assembly elections in 10 polling units in the Victoria Garden City (VGC) around the Lekki area of the state.

INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Segun Agbaje made the announcement when he addressed reporters at the VGC.

According to him, corps members deployed as ad hoc staff on Saturday were hesitant to enter the VGC estate as they alleged that they were held hostage in the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections.

Agbaje said the commission’s ad hoc staff set up voting materials in front of the estate on Saturday but the estate residents claimed that hoodlums might disrupt the process, so they did not feel secure and could not cast their votes.

He said the situation was difficult for security agents to contain hence he and his team had to come to the area

"We have eight polling units here with 6,024 registered voters and out of which 5,624 people have their PVCs,” he stated, adding that two other polling units at the estate’s main gate were also affected. “Eight here (in the estate) and two outside,” he noted.

"After due consultation and further directive from the national headquarters that we should remobilise here tomorrow (Sunday) morning by 08:30am to conduct the elections.

By 08:30am tomorrow (Sunday), we will reconvene here.”

Agbaje said the chairman of the security committee of the estate had assured the commission of the safety of corps members and INEC staff as well as the safety of voters.

Some of the polling units affected include PU 032,033, 119 -124.

The desperation



The killings



The bloodbath




Kudos to all those whom despite being at the disadvantage went out to vote


Luckily the country is divided now

And this generation have witnessed what their fathers went through

It's an eye opener



Seperation of this contraption is next

There will be no voting again this is because Sanwo-Eko will win with over 200,000margun, so the 6,000 plus votes in that area will not be needed by anybody again

The trend of voter's intimidation, electoral violence and malpractices by the operators of the structure of corruption and criminality is really alarming. They can win clean via the ballot hence always resort to violence.

Igbos cannot be President.
Igbos cannot vote.
Igbos cannot get Biafra. At the mention of it they give you the IPOB tag.

This has gone past intimidation. This is witchcraft.

It is in times like these when the battle line is drawn, you will really know where you belong.

The only Southerners free from disenfranchisement in Lagos by default are Yorubas who have tribal marks and 'look like Yorubas'.

The rest Yorubas and other tribes in the South are bunched together as one. Remember this, when next you begin to hear terms like South South and South East

They could mean the same thing or mean different things depending on the agenda.

Good, this alone is enough to even reschedule the Lagos State Governorship Election. More police should be mobilised to every polling unit across Lagos to avoid what happened today from happening again.
