Nigeria Decide 2019: APC Leading In Aso Villa

The All Progressives Congress, APC, on Saturday, won all polling units for both chairman and councilors hip elections at the presidential villa, Abuja.

 Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) arrived the two PUs located in the villa as early as 7:45am to wait for the arrival of voters.

Unlike the Presidential and National Assembly elections held on February 23, which featured massive voter turn out, the units were scanty with adhoc staff relaxing with virtually no work to do. More than 2,600 voters who were accredited voted at the two polling stations in the Presidential and National Assembly elections. Voting commenced at exactly 8:00am and ended at about 2:06pm. Accreditation and voting was done simultaneously in a peaceful atmosphere.
