Residents have expressed their frustration about the lengthy queue at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office, First Gate, First Avenue, Festac Town.
Mr. David Ejiofor, a resident of Amuwo Odofin, claimed to have written his name on a list of about one hundred people on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, but he was not attended to after he waited all day.
He also explained that he had been there for about eight hours on Wednesday and was not certain he would be attended to. “It takes some people three days to get their registration done,” he said.
Mr. Femi Ayoola, also a resident, told our correspondent it is advisable to be at the INEC office between 6:00am and 7:00am to avoid being further down on the list. I have been here since about 7:00am and I am still here at 3:15pm. People who come late have to return the next day. ”
It was observed that over 35 people were yet to be attended to at about 3:30 pm, as they waited in anticipation.
Some residents were seen leaving the INEC office but claimed to have returned on Thursday morning.
Our correspondent was unable to gain access to the office to speak to INEC officials, who were seen attending to residents through the windows.
He also gathered that registration closes by the end of June, 2022.
