Lagos - The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has failed to hold the rescheduled election in some parts of Oshodi area of Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, where elections did not hold on Saturday, PM News reports.

As at 4:00pm on Sunday, INEC officials had not shown up to conduct the rescheduled election in 28 polling units in Oshodi.

Residents, however, waited endlessly for them to come, vowing that they must cast their votes.

At polling units 054 and 055 on Salami Street, residents complained bitterly that INEC officials refused to show up to hold the election.

Police officers were also tired as they were also waiting for INEC officials from morning.
