INEC has discontinued the ongoing election in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State following what security operatives termed ‘suspension for security reasons’.
Mr. Anidi Ikowak, INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in the State explained in Agbor, Delta State that certain key figures in the locality had ensured electoral officers couldn’t convey voting materials to the Polling Units.
Punch reports Anidi as saying the initial complaint was that these stakeholders had stated how wanted to see the constituency collation form.
Anidi howver stated that “… even when the form was brought, they did not still want the materials moved. So the police had to advise that for security reasons, the election should be suspended.”
