Bayelsa supplementary poll 'records impressive voter turnout'

09 January 2016, 13:17

Anyama-Ijaw - Saturday’s governorship supplementary election in Bayelsa recorded impressive turnout of voters in most units in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area where the exercise is being conducted.

As early as 07:45, voters had queued in polling units in some of the wards, waiting for accreditation and voting to begin at 08:00 as directed by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

With adequate presence of security personnel and electoral officials, the exercise began peacefully at all the polling units in Anyama Primary School, Anyama-Ijaw, Ward 2, at 09:30.

The exercise was also smooth in other units in the ward, with the card reader functioning well.

Delay in distribution of materials within Ward 4 caused the exercise to commence at about 10:00 in the area.

At Peremabiri, where polling was being conducted at the Town Hall, the card reader was also functioning, with the voters taking their turns in accreditation and balloting.

However, the exercise was yet to commence at Odenwari community, Ward 3, at 10:15, as materials were still awaited in spite of large presence of voters as well as security personnel.
