The governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections which held today, Saturday, across Nigeria could not be held in Mopa-Muro Local Government Area of Kogi State as a result of the wrong delivery of ballot papers to the area.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Electoral Officer for the local government, Opanachi Ojodale, announced today that the election in the area will now be held tomorrow, Sunday after rectifying the challenges.
According to Opanachi Ojodale, ballot papers belonging to Akpa East LGA in Kogi East were taken to Mopa-Muro LGA, even as he confirmed that the new ballot papers for Mopa-Muro would be delivered later today, Saturday from Abuja.
However, there is no governorship election in the State because the tenure of the governor is yet to expire. However, the state assembly election was held as in other states of the federation.
