Polling units in Abaji Area Council witnessed a large turnout of voters in the ongoing Area Council elections in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Saturday.

In the Alhassan Wanzan polling unit in Abaji, accreditation of voters started as early as 8am, as they turned out in large numbers.

Voting started at about 10.15am at three polling booths for voters to cast their votes, because of the large number that turned for the exercise.

Ajiha, however, complained of the slow process of the voting exercise because of hitches from the Bimodal Voters Verification Accreditation System (BVVAS), calling on INEC to improve on the technology.

Danjuma Tanko, one of the voters, who also commended INEC officials for turning up early to commence accreditation of voters, said that they decided to turn out in large numbers so that they can elect the candidates of their choice as chairman and councillors in the Area Council.
