Labour party name missing on ballot papers in FCT

SOME voters in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have raised the alarm that the Labour Party’s name is missing beside the logo on the ballot papers in a polling unit at Wuse Zone 2.

“When I voted in Zone 2, I noticed that the major parties have their names by the party logo, but Labour Party isn’t there. Is that everywhere?

“In Gwagwalada, everything looks good. Large turnouts but process slow, making people restless,” the voter, who did not wish to be named, said.



    He added that at the Kutunku registration area at Fulani Town Hall, two PDP agents complained that voters with PVCs were being turned back from the line and told their names were not on the list.

    However, when they went to check on the list pasted by the PU, they found their name.

    “One PDP agent said they profile voters and are denying people of Hausa/Fulani origin to vote. But there is absolutely no evidence,” he added.

    He, however, said the INEC official claimed their names were missing from their list at PU 004.
