Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has voted in the election to the 57 local councils in Lagos state.
The election was said to have been slowed down in some parts of the state, with the heavy downpour in some parts of the state.
Ambode voted at the Ogunmodede Junior/Senior College, Epe, after his accreditation.
He said measures have been put in place to ensure a peaceful election.
“I urge all Lagosians to exercise their franchise and vote to choose representatives who will lead us at the grassroots,” he said.
Outside of Epe, reports on the polls were mixed.
In Okota -Isolo axis voting did not commence until after 10’oclock, due to the late arrival of electoral officials.
The early downpour must have been a contributing factor.
The turn out of voters was poor at some of polling booths. Children were seen playing football. However, the turn out of voters was impressive at poling booth 012 and 013 OKOTA.
Police vans blasted sirens while patrolling the streets.
