#BayelsaDecides: Jonathan laments late arrival of INEC officials



Former President Goodluck Jonathan has decried the late arrival of officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) hours after the commencement of the election.

Jonathan, who reportedly arrived at his Polling Unit 39, Ward 13, in Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area (LGA) of Bayelsa State, at 8.30 a.m., was disappointed not to meet any INEC official but met only journalists observing the poll.

He said: “Are you an electoral officer, where are they?”
