Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has expressed satisfaction with the security situation in the state as the people vote to elect their representatives in the state and national legislatures.
But he expressed displeasure about the electoral umpire, the Independent national Electoral Commission (INEC), complaining about the preparedness of the electoral body.
He noted that there was late arrival of polling materials.
The re-run elections were ordered by the court, which cancelled earlier polls held in the 2015 general elections.
Wike voted at Unit 7, Ward 9 in Rumueprikom, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, at 11:57a.m. after going through an accreditation process using the card reader.
Meanwhile, in Bera community in Khana Local Government Area, some youths prevented INEC officials from distributing election materials on the allegation that the materials were fake.
