Nigeria Decides: Voters’ names disappear in Lugbe, INEC officials keep electorates waiting in Kuje




There was large turn out of voters at the Pegni Primary School polling unit, Kuje as early as 7am.

But uptil 10.10am no official was on hand.

However, the voters composed themselves and started issuing themselves numbers pending when the officials would come to commence accreditation and voting. 

They did not until around 10.50 am.

Allegation that went round was that it is largely an opposition enclave and that INEC was deliberately delaying the process to frustrate them. 

From Lugbe, Blueprint Correspondent reports that many electorates on the Umar Musa Yar’Adua Way, Abuja, are likely to be disfranchised in the ongoing presidential and national assembly elections.

Blueprint gathered that missing names on the voters’ register discouraged many who left the polling units at Lugbe Government Secondary and Mr Bigg’s, in frustration.
Voting didn’t start at these polling units until past 11.

Mrs Toyin Olaitan said: “I will just go home since I can’t find my name.”

Many others expressed their dissatisfaction with the slow and  unorganized process.

Blueprint reports that names were written by voters who in turn were called to vote.

As at 12:50 P.M only 150 people have cast their vote at Mr. Bigg’s polling unit, Federal Housing Lugbe.
