Voting begins in Ondo LG election

The Ondo State Local Government Election has commenced as accreditation and voting have begun.
At some polling units visited by our correspondent, accreditation of voters and voting commenced at exactly 9:30am but that was not the case in other units as late arrival of voting materials delayed the process with some units yet to receive the materials as of 10:330am.
Our Correspondence had earlier reported that the exercise, which was earlier scheduled to hold in April 2020, was suspended indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
But the Chairman of the state Independent Electoral Commission, Yomi Dinakin, had said last month that the election would hold on August 22.
“Notice is hereby given that the poll for chairmanship and councilorship elections shall hold on Saturday , 22nd of August, 2020.
“ Accreditation and voting start 8am on that day and closes 3pm to give room for collation. All vehicular movement shall be restricted except those on essential and election duties. Markets and shops shall remain closed within the period.” Dinakin had said.
