#Election: INEC holds election in 85 Lagos polling units

The Independent National Electoral Commission held election on Sunday in 85 polling units in five of the 20 local government areas of Lagos State where the poll was declared inconclusive on Saturday.
There are 8,462 polling units in the state.
The election was declared inconclusive in the affected local government areas due to logistic hitches, such as late arrival of electoral materials and failure of smart card readers to accredit voters.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Lagos State, Mr. Akin Orebiyi, on Friday night, listed the affected local governments as Alimosho, Eti-Osa, Kosofe, Oshodi and Somolu.
He said accreditation would start at 10 am and end at 2 pm, while voting would start at 2.30 pm and end when the last accredited person on the queue must have cast his ballot.
A document obtained by our correspondents on Sunday revealed that voting would take place in 90 polling units across the five local government areas.
In Alimosho Local Government, 21 polling units were affected in the following wards: Shasha Akowonjo, two polling units; Egbeda/Alimosho, four polling units; Olofin, one; Kando-Edan, five; Ipaja North, two; Ipaja South, four; Ayobo/Ijan Village, one; and Abule Egba/Miran/Alagbado, one.
Five polling units were affected at Ajah/Sangotedo Ward in Eti-Osa Local Government Area, while 57 were affected at Oworonshoki Ward in Kosofe Local Government Area.
At Orile-Oshodi Ward in Oshodi-Isolo Local Government Area, five polling units were affected and two at Bajulaiye Ward in Somolu Local Government Area.
