The voting process at polling unit-Code 33, Victoria Garden City (VGC), where Vice- President Yemi Osinbajo was expected to cast his vote has experienced a delay due to the absence of ad-hoc officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Reports say as at 9.05 a.m, INEC ad hoc staff were yet to arrive the polling unit as accreditation of voters was also yet to start for the Gubernatorial and State Houses of Assembly Elections.

However, the residents of VGC led by their Chairman, Mr Adetokunbo Ladega, were seen making arrangements toward registering the few voters who had turned out to exercise their civic responsibilities.

Recall that voting did not start at the same polling unit during the Feb. 23 Presidential and National Assembly Elections until about 9.45a.m to the dismay of scores of eligible voters in the area.
