Rain, ritual and rants over register


9:05am: INEC officials arrived early at the four polling units around Community Grammar School, Surulere for the governorship elections.

Agents of Labour Party and APC say an overnight drizzle, last minute shopping and traffic jams the previous day may be the reason why voters are trickling in.

Some voters ranted about the missing register where they can check their names.
