The centre has seven polling units (PU), all based in the LGA primary school.

The PUs consist of polling units 1 and 2, Inorere Ward, PU 1 and 2 Nagazi ward, and PU 1, 2 and 3, Logaminna, all in Adavi LGA, Kogi Central.

According to the voters, the centre is the largest voting centre in the town.



    Some of the voters expressed optimism that the election would go well and be rancour-free while speaking with The ICIR.

    Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials were seen setting up their booths at some polling units and absent at some.

    There were more women in the queue than men, with some of them strapping their babies on their backs.

    INEC is holding the governorship election in Kogi today to usher in a new government at the end of the current governor’s tenure, Yahaya Bello.
