Numerous voters in numerous communities in the Ohaji/Egbema and Owerri West Local Government Areas of Imo State have taken to social media to express their outrage over the lack of ad hoc staff from the Independent National Electoral Commission in their polling places, which has prevented them from voting in the general election of 2023.

A number of them who spoke with our correspondent claimed that as of 12:00 p.m., INEC officials had not yet been spotted at polling places throughout the LGAs.

No INEC personnel are present in Owerri West LGA, Imo State, a Facebook user named Don Landers claimed.

Don Darlington Onyiriuka, another user, stated: “As of right now, no electoral materials have been located anywhere in Ohaji/Egbema.”
