The Head of ECOWAS Election Observer Mission to Nigeria, Madam Ellen Jonhson Sirleaf, is leading a delegation of election monitors to some polling centres in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Sirleaf led her team to the Durumi II Primary School polling centre with eight voting points to monitor the conduct of Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections in the country.
Sirleaf, who arrived the polling centre at about 8.55 a.m waited patiently until the first female voter, Mrs Comfort Akale, cast the first ballot of the polling unit at about 9.50 a.m.
The head of the ECOWAS election observer mission departed the polling unit at 10.05 a.m without a word to newsmen.
NAN also reports that the polling centre was crowded due to the large turnout of eligible voters.
