Ngele Chinonso, who spoke to our correspondent, said he would not waste his time to vote since “INEC will announce another thing”.

“Even though I am going anywhere today, I have to relax and sleep in the house. It is better than going to vote as it will not count. INEC deceived us that they will conduct free and fair elections. 

“As of 10:10 am electoral materials have not arrived in our polling units. In the last election – presidential election polling started at 2:05 pm. And it appears they will not come today till that time,” he said.
