Altercation over positioning of cubicle delays voting in Calabar

By Christian Njoku

#TrackNigeria -Voters in Ward 2 Polling Unit 005, Calabar Municipality Local Government Area, have insisted that the cubicles in the unit must be placed where everyone could see them, leading to altercation between the voters and Independent National Commission(INEC) officials.

The altercation began when the INEC officials announced the commencement of accreditation and voting simultaneously and explained that the separation of the cubicles in the unit was for easier administration and voting.

According the voters, the official arrangement of  the electoral process was not acceptable because it would encourage rigging of the election.

Some of them said they have always voted in the unit in past elections and the cubicles were always kept where everyone could see them.

Voting later commenced at 10a.m. with the  security operatives on the  ground to ensure law and order.(NAN)
