INEC to conduct supplementary election in Lagos
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Thursday announced it has concluded arrangements to conduct a supplementary election in Lagos State.
INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Sam Olumekun, made this announcement in a statement on Thursday.
The Commission stated that supplementary election will hold in nine polling units of Ibeju-Lekki State constituency I.
According to the statement, the election in the state constituency was inconclusive as a result of over-voting in nine polling units covering two Registration Areas of the constituency.
Before taking the decision of holding the supplementary election, the Commission met with all the relevant stakeholders in the area including the political parties and affected candidates, Inter-agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) for the local government and other interested groups.
INEC noted that only voters with valid permanent voter’s cards within Ibeju-Lekki State constituency I will be allowed into the polling units to vote.
It also stated that training of ad hoc staff for the supplementary election is ongoing at the Registration Area Centre (RAC).
