he further said that there is inadequate supply of electoral materials in Kauran Namoda local government of the state.

According to him, there was only one hundred ballot paper in one of the ward and over one thousand for the presidential election.

He added that when INEC commissioner was contacted by a PDP candidate they chased him away.

“Seven polling units were without electoral materials, we don’t know if INEC has compromised and is not ready for credible election and this is unacceptable. If there is no voting materials then there was no voting in these seven areas,” Muhammad explained.
