NAN correspondent who visited Osisioma Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, reported that voting materials started arriving in Polling Units at about 8:30 a.m. but the voters were yet to arrive.

Anyanwu expressed optimism that the number of voters would increase in a short while.
The situation was different at Amasator Ward 3, Polling Unit 009 as some people had already voted as at 8:50a.m.(
