Lagos Commissioner of Finance Embarrassed, Harassed At Polling Unit


The Commissioner for Finance in Lagos State, Rabiu Olowo was on Saturday harassed and embarrassed by voters for jumping the queue at the polling unit in Oko-baba, Lagos Mainland.

Naija News understands that the Commissioner who arrived Oke-Odo Junior High School, Oko-baba, Oyingbo, to cast his vote at the polling unit 12 was cheered and led by the youths to jump the long queue of voters to be accredited and cast his vote.

However, Hon. Rabiu who appreciated the gesture insisted on standing in the queue from the end but the youths stood their ground.

Angered by this, a secondary school teacher identified as Akeem protested against the move by the youth.

Akeem insisted the Commissioner must join other voters who have been standing under the scorching sun to cast their vote, Tribune reports.

He said, “We have been in the queue for so long. It is out of place for anyone to jump the line while we remain under the sun. Due process must be followed.”

Commissioner Rabiu eventually took a position at the end of the line and accredited and cast his vote.
