The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) members who were approached for logistics are to fault, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), for the late arrival of election materials in several areas of Ogun state.
Olaniyi Ijalaye, the resident electoral commissioner (REC), said this to the media while visiting governor Dapo Abiodun’s polling place to assess the voting process in progress there and at other polling places in the Ikenne LGA.

Ijalaye attributed the late arrival of materials as the cause of the delayed start of voting and the absence of election materials in several sections of the state.
He said, “With all due respect, it is not just the governor’s polling unit but with a few others that had one or two challenges. But as we speak, voting has commenced there and until the last man and woman have voted, we will not close voting.
“I am really pleased that people have trooped out to exercise their civil responsibility by voting for candidates of their choice. Virtually everywhere I have gone, accreditation has taken place and voting has commenced in some places. In some other places, accreditation is ongoing, while in a few other areas, we are having challenges with the issue of transportation.
“We are in collaboration with the NURTW and there is a bit of few logistical issues that have now been resolved. I want to give the good people of Ogun State the assurance that no one will be disenfranchised. Even if voting commences now, we will not close voting until the last person has voted.”
