Kwara LGA Election Update: Voters Apathy, Insufficient Materials Disrupting Process

Voters in the Local Government Election in Kwara, have expressed disappointment at what they call either poor planning of the election or outright attempt to disrupt the electoral going by the conduct of KWASIEC officiating.

Our correspondents report that as at 11.00am on Saturday in some areas suspected to be the strong hold of People’s Democratic Party, materials were either inadequate or not available polling unit 003 at Ipata Oloje, Ilorin West Local Government Area of Kwara despite the impressive turn out of voters.

Also at Polling units, 006 at Oke Agodi 2, the absence of recording sheets and harassment of voter’s unrest characterize the environment resulting in a chaos while a case of ballot box snatching was reported at Oke Agodi 1, while voters were awaiting the recording sheets.

The low level of security presence was another factor that gave hoodlums free hands to operate especially the case of ballot box snatching.

Many of the voters spoken with said that they would not vote unless the recording sheets and the ballot papers were brought completely.

Irate youths at Ode-Aremu, Ilorin West LG, who became agitated and started issuing threats to KWASIEC and political leaders were nowhere to be found in all the areas.
