The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has uncovered 23 polling units at private homes in Akwa Ibom State.
INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr Mike Igini, disclosed this during his appearance on Sunrise Daily.
He explained that the discovery was made after he was transferred to the state from neighbouring Cross River State.
“I set up a committee to identify the location of polling units on account of records that I have from within the system found; I discovered 23 polling units were in private homes – the compounds of politicians,”
Igini also took a swipe at the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
He said, “APC in Akwa Ibom and PDP; they are the same people tied together in a single garment of one destiny.
“They’ve always been together before, forget about all this mutation. It is not whether you agree with me but it’s about the fact on the ground.”
