It was gathered that the panel said it had not sent anyone to the local governments to monitor the primaries.
As results of the voting had been announced at several wards in the state, the panel urged the public to disregard such announcements.
It was earlier reported that the chairman of the Lagos governorship electoral panel, Chief Clement Ebri, on Tuesday, October 2, reportedly said accreditation and voting were yet to commence at the various centres.
