On Saturday, early voters at various polling units at Aso Villa complained about the late arrival of ad hoc staff members of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The INEC ad hoc staff arrived around 9:20 a.m., while hundreds of voters were already present, according to our correspondent.
Ayodele, a voter who spoke with our correspondent, said he arrived at his polling unit at the Presidential Villa around 6 a.m.
"I've been here since 6 a.m., and it's unfortunate that these guys just arrived minutes past 9 a.m.," Ayodele said. I hope they start voting earlier as well."
"As you can see, the INEC personnel are just arriving, and they arrived late. We've been here for a long time." Precious informed our correspondent that she was yet another voter.
According to an ad hoc staff member who did not give his name to our correspondent, they arrived late because INEC officials did not provide them with election materials on time.
"It's not our fault that we arrived late," he explained. INEC officials failed to provide us with election materials on time. However, we assure voters that the election process will be smooth."
Our correspondent also saw police officers, operatives from the Department of State Security Service, and some military personnel.
Abdulrasheed Bawa, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, was previously seen inspecting polling units with his team at the Presidential Villa.
Bawa praised the ongoing exercise in a brief interview with journalists.
"We have visited several polling units in Abuja and so far," Bawa said. We have not seen any instances of vote buying."
