  1. An underage voter photographed while casting his ballot at Bondiga Tauma Ward in Sokoto
  2. This is a polling unit in Sokoto North were a supplementary election is expected to take place today 23rd March 2019. As early as 7am , women, including nursing mothers were seen on the queue, struggling to maintain their position while waiting for inec officials to arrive. Note, INEC officials are yet to appear. During my undergraduate days at the University of Maiduguri Borno State, Same scenario applies. Our Northern, Mostly Muslim brothers and sisters will arrive at the polling unit very early enough waiting to caste their votes during Students Union Government Elections. Northern ,Southern Christain Sisters and brothers Campaign the most on Campus, Argue and Analyse the most , but mostly drag their feets to the polling units on election day. Most of them arrive late to polling units, a good number end up not voting due to late arrival, while others continue to procasinate and not showing up at the polling unit at all . The above scenario equally applies in the South of Nigeria especially in the South East of Nigeria. We talk, talk , and talk , we complain and complain, we argue and argue, we take over the media space arguing yet we fail to participate actively in the voting process that shapes our lives. A process that determines our economic, social , cultural and political life. Most of us in the South East claim to be more knowledgeable, smarter , very intelligent, very sharp, yet we do not understand the common sense of Political Power , what a people, what an Irony . This is 7am and women across Sokoto and other parts of Northern Nigeria are ready to vote . Can this be said of our people? Photo Credit : TVC News Comrade S.O.B Igwe 23/03/2019

  6. LAST THURSDAY, THE INDEPENDENT NATIONAL ELECT0RAL COMMISSION, INEC, DECLARED GBOYEGA OYETOLA OF THE APC AS THE WINNER OF THE GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION IN OSUN STATE. Oyetola polled a total of 255,505 votes after the collation of the results of the supplementary election in seven polling units across four local governments, while PDP’s Ademola Adeleke polled a total of 255,023 votes to come second. But at the initial election which held last Saturday, Davido’s uncle scored the highest number of votes, beating Oyetola with 353 votes but INEC declared the election inconclusive and ordered a rerun because the number of canceled votes in the seven polling units was far higher than the margin by which Adeleke beat Oyetola.

  7. Some Corps members released by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Anambra to work as ad hoc poll staff in the proposed January 13 Anambra Central Senatorial election have declined the offer. Some of the corps members, who pleaded anonymity, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that they were not interested due to the inability of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to pay their allowance during the November 18 governorship election. They complained that some of their colleagues who took part in the last exercise were still coming for their money after they had passed out and left Anambra. Confirming the situation, Ebenezer Olawale, the NYSC Coordinator in Anambra, said only about 4,000 corps members out of about 7,600 shortlisted and released reported for INEC training for the 13 election duty. Mr. Olawale noted that the NYSC would make available any number of corps members requested by INEC for its election duties but reiterated that participation was not compulsory. “NYSC is prepared because they are already training our corps members. “INEC said they needed 7,627 Corps members and we have released as much as that for them, however, it is left for the corps members to accept. “We are not compelling our corps members to do it, it not compulsory; it is a voluntary assignment. “The last election, INEC promised to take care of them as much as possible but some of them complained that they were treated badly; that could discourage them from participating in this one. “Some of them complained of not being paid their allowances for the last gubernatorial election. “It may not be entirely INEC responsibility because some of them did not write their names and numbers correctly, and others did not have their data well recorded, some of them are still being treated now. “I am told that out of the over 7,000 we released to them, only about 4,000 indicated interest and responded to their training,” he said. Mr. Olawale explained that INEC should create a forum where all the affected corps members would be addressed and their fears allayed, instead of attending to them piecemeal. He urged corps members participating in the election to remain neutral and unbiased as always and discharge their duties with all fairness to all. Also speaking, Nkwachkwu Orji, Resident Electoral Commission, INEC, in Anambra, said that they have mobilized all the manpower needed for the exercise. Mr. Orji, who acknowledged that some corps members had not been paid their allowance, attributed the problem to incomplete information provided by the corps members. He dismissed the notion that the corps shunned the duty call because of nonpayment of allowance for the previous assignment. The REC said out of the 23,000 ad-hoc staff engaged in the Nov. 18 governorship election, over 20,000 had been paid and promised to continue to address the complaints on nonpayment as they come. “It is not true that they did not respond to our call because of nonpayment of allowance. “When we conducted the training some of them were still in their villages enjoying Christmas and New Year; we have mobilized enough staff, this is just election in seven local government areas. “The population that is yet to receive their allowance is quite a few, we engaged about 23,000 and about 20,000 have been paid and we are still paying,” he said.
