According to the commission, there are 332 wards, 3,010 polling units and 3,379 voting points across the 30 local government areas of the state.

Also, 20 political parties registered and are fielding candidates in the election.

To ensure transparency, the Commission has also accredited 29 domestic and foreign organisations to monitor and observe the election.

Meanwhile, the two major political parties, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have been trading blames.

While the APC has been alleging plans by the PDP to rig the election, the latter has also been accusing the former of crying wolf where there is none.
