As planned, voting has started at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Area Council elections being conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). 

The exercise is holding in the six area councils – Abaji, Kwali, Bwari, Kuje, Gwagwalada and Abuja Municipal (AMAC).

The candidates are coming from across about 13 political parties approved to participate in the exercise.

Information on the website of INEC indicates that 110 candidates are in the race for the chairmanship and vice chairmanship positions in the six area councils.

Three hundred and sixty-three candidates are contesting 62 councillorship positions across the six area councils.

The situation is, however, different at various polling units at the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC).

There are low turnout of voters at some polling units amid recording impressive turnouts.

The Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (machines) are being used in the exercise.

A cross-section of voters have faulted the slow pace of the accreditation exercise.
