Lagos Commissioner Harassed For Jumping Queue At Polling Unit


The state Commissioner for Finance, Hon. Rabiu Olowo was verbally harassed and assaulted by voters for jumping the queue at his polling unit in Oko-baba, Lagos Mainland.

The Commissioner who arrived Oke-Odo Junior High , 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.

Hon. Rabiu who appreciated the honour bestowed insisted on standing in the queue from the end but the youths stood their ground.

Angered by this, a secondary school teacher identified as Mr 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.

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.
