Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were spotted at the polling unit of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), before the commencement of Saturday’s elections.
Tinubu, one of the four leading presidential candidates, is expected to vote at his polling unit 085 in ward 3, Ikeja LGA, Lagos state.
As of 9:50 am, voting was yet to commence at the polling unit as voters waited for officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The former governor of Lagos state was also yet to arrive at the venue for accreditation and voting.
The delay in the commencement of voting comes despite INEC’s directive that voting would commence by 8:30 am.
At the venue, the EFCC officials were seen alongside other security operatives on the ground to ensure a peaceful atmosphere and clampdown on suspected fraudulent activities during the elections.
