The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the ongoing Governorship and State Assembly elections in 10 polling units in Lagos State.

The affected polling units are in Victoria Garden City (VGC) in Eti-Osa Local Government Area of the State.

While addressing the media on Saturday, INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Lagos, Mr Olusegun Agbaje, said the ad-hoc staff deployed in the area refused to carry out their duties there because of an experience they had during the Presidential Poll.
