Nollywood actress, Omoni Oboli has accused officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of allegedly refusing to show up at the polling unit in VGC, Lagos.
In a video shared on her Instagram page, the actress revealed that they arrived early and set up to wait for INEC at the designated VGC polling unit, only for them to receive information that the electoral officials are asking voters to meet them at the express instead of the VCG polling unit.
Omoni explained that the venue has always been the polling unit for all VGC residents. She then asked how thousands of people will be expected to walk all the way to the express just to vote.
She noted how such demand is ridiculous and could be risky to voters, especially with the presence of thugs. Omoni, who doesn’t need stress, stated that it’s too early for her to be tired.
“Hey guys!! It’s 8:30am and we are fully set up here. Everything is completely organized. All the polling unit are here but INEC has said they aren’t coming in to VGC.
“They are going to set up on the express. There are thousands of people here (they said we should come to the express to cast our votes)”.
“Please I don’t need stress @inecnigeria @stephbusari @cnnafrica What na? It’s too early to be tired!!,” she wote.
Others in the polling unit are heard making the same complaint and questioning why INEC would do such.
The actress is seen in the video waiting to vote alongside others like a motivational speaker, Fela Durotoye and wife, beauty entrepreneur, Tara Durotoye.
