About 24 hours after the opening of polls in Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections in Lagos State, no single result from the 20 Local Government Areas (LGAs) has arrived at the State Collation Centre.
Prof. Adenike Oladiji, the State Collation Officer and Vice-Chancellor, Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) stated this during the official opening of the centre for the final collation of election results in Lagos State at about 12:00 a.m. on Sunday.
Oladiji, who described the collation as a serious assignment, said that the centre was still awaiting results from all the 20 LGAs as of midnight.
Earlier in his opening address, Mr Olusegun Agbaje, the Resident Electoral Commissioner in Lagos State, who commended the state collation officer, said that collation was at various stages in the state.
According to Agbaje, in the end, Nigerians will be happy that INEC has done a lot to ensure that people are allowed to vote despite a few hitches.
