Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) have initiated the crucial phase of sorting and counting votes in the aftermath of Saturday’s governorship election in Imo State.
Voting concluded in most polling units in the Ehime Mbano council area around 4:30 pm.
At specific locations such as Umunumo Town School 08, Central School Umueze I (010), and Central School Umueze II (011), sorting and counting processes were underway by 4:50 pm, marking a pivotal stage in determining the election outcome.
However, concerns of voter apathy emerged in Central School Ogboama (09), Umuezeala community, Ehime Mbano LGA, where out of over 700 registered voters, only 200 individuals were accredited to vote, as reported by DAILY POST.
Throughout Saturday, InfoStride News observed simultaneous accreditation of voters and the commencement of voting at 8:30 am in many polling units.
This synchronized approach followed the timely arrival of INEC officials equipped with both sensitive and non-sensitive materials, ensuring a smooth start to the electoral process.
The ongoing vote counting signifies a crucial step towards unveiling the results of Imo State’s closely watched gubernatorial election.
