The bye-election for Aba North and South Federal Constituency held on Saturday witnessed a low turnout of voters.

Our correspondent who visited various wards and polling units in Aba North and South Local Government Areas of the State reports that some of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ad-hoc staff were seen sleeping on duty as a result of the low turnout of voters.

At Osusu Primary School, INEC staff had no other choice but to sit on the floor to perform their duties as the community could not provide them with seats and chairs, a situation an INEC ad-hoc staff disclosed made their job hectic and strenuous.

At Osusu Hall, unit 34, only 15 out of 1239 accredited voters had voted at the time our correspondent visited the polling unit.

At Gold Course Primary School, just like other places visited, the INEC officials were said to have arrived in the area late.

At unit 4 of the Golf course, only 15 person had voted at the time of our correspondent’s visit, while 10 out of 781 voters at Okigwe road primary school voted.

Residents also flouted the restriction on movement order by the state government as many commercial buses and tricycle operators were on the streets doing their normal business.
