(NAN) Poor Turnout Of Voters, Confusion As Plateau Holds LG Elections

Poor turnout of voters has been observed in most polling units in Plateau State as it holds elections into its local government councils.

The elections are holding in 14 out of the 17 Local Government Areas with Jos North, Jos South, Riyom and Barkin-Ladi LGAs left out.

Governor Simon Lalong had hinged the decision to leave out the four local governments on “prevailing security situation’’.

Correspondents of the News Agency of Nigeria, who went round some polling units in Pankshin, Mangu, Bassa, Langtang North, Langtang South and Shendam LGAs, observed that the turnout of voters was very low.

At Youth Centre polling unit in Pankshin central, NAN found less than 10 prospective voters on the queue as at 11:10am.

The situation was the same in the two polling units of Nerr in Pankshin, where NAN met 12 voters milling around and waiting for the electoral officers.
