The Independent National Electoral Commission says it has cancelled elections in Bonny Local Government Area of Rivers after voting failed to take off there today.
The commission’s spokesperson in Rivers State, Edwin Enabor, confirmed the decision to Journalists on Saturday afternoon.
He said elections in the area would now hold on another date to be set by the commission.
“In Bonny, there was no election at all,” said Mr Enabor, adding that: “the exercise there has been postponed. It will hold on another day.”
The APC supporters reportedly alleged that the ballot papers deployed to the area were fake.
