Rescheduled State Assembly election in Kogi witnesses low turnout


The rescheduled House of Assembly election in Mopamuro Local Government Area of Kogi has witnessed a very low turnout of voters.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday postponed the state House of Assembly election across Mopamuro Local Government Area of Kogi.

The Electoral Officer, Mopamuro LGA, Mr. Opanachi Ojodale, said that the election was postponed to Sunday, March 10, due to the wrong ballot papers that were taken to the area.

INEC officials arrived various polling units ahead of the scheduled time (8:00 a.m.) across the 10 wards in the local government area.

The card readers at the various polling units visited also functioned effectively.

The counting of votes is on-going in Mopamuro.
