Voting has already started in various polling units across the LGAs as there is heavy presence of military men at Ariaria junction to Abayi.

However, there have been low turn out of voters, as at the time of filing in this report.

In other areas, card readers in polling units across Ukwa east Local Government Area of the state have failed in recognizing the finger print of voters.

This has forced the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) staff to resort to manual voting.

However, there is high level of voter apathy as not much people came out to exercise their civic duty.
