Voting Continues Today In Bayelsa, Shifted To March 11 In Some Polling Units In Imo And Edo
Voting of the Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly polls continue today in Bayelsa State due to security problems.
The voting will take place in 141 polling units in Yenagoa, the state capital where the polls were disrupted by thugs on Saturday, and the reluctance of the ad-hoc staff to return to the polling units, after security was normalised in the area.

Also, voting in Saturday’s polls in three local government areas in Edo State had been shifted to March 11, to hold along with the governorship and State Houses of Assembly polls.
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, Professor Mahmoud Jega said the shift to March 11 was due to the non avalability of the logo of a party on the ballot paper.
Also in Imo State, the polls in seven polling units have been shifted to March 11 due to security problems.
