#NasarawaDecides: INEC Delays Voting By 15 Minutes Due To Lack Of Ink


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) reportedly delayed the commencement of voting by over 15 minutes at a polling unit in Nasarawa earlier today due to a lack of ink.

According to a report by Channels TV, the incident happened at Aunty Alice Secondary School polling unit in Mararaba, Nasarawa State.

The INEC officials arrived at the polling unit as early as 8:15 am but had to wait until about 8:30 am before they commenced the process because they didn’t have ink in the ink pad to stamp the ballot papers and for thumb printing of votes.

They had to wait on their supervisors to bring the required equipment to the polling unit before the voting process commenced, according to the assistant presiding officer.
