President Jonathan’s Polling Unit Result Delayed


After Difficulties Accrediting GEJ, Results are yet to be announced in the Unit 39, Ward 13, where President Goodluck Jonathan voted.
Voting was still ongoing as at 8pm.
When the last person on the queue voted, the electoral officer announced that counting would begin.
But a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) agent, who gave her name as S. Otazi, complained that several people were yet to vote.


She said some went home when there were hitches and could return to vote.
The electoral officer then stopped the
counting and returned the ballot papers to the boxes. Only about three more people voted afterwards.
At about 9pm, the electoral officer said the unit, in front of President Jonathan’s country home, was becoming unsafe and that they were relocating to a “safer place”.
An Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ad-hoc staff told our correspondent that they were moving to the collation centre where the result would be announced.
“It could be announced this night or tomorrow morning, but I’m not sure,” he said.
