The Resident Electoral Commissioner, Yobe, Alhaji Ahmad Makama told newsmen after the distribution on Friday in Damaturu.

Though we were delayed for one day due to some inevitable reasons, however, the distribution has commenced and we are set for tomorrows election, Makama said.

While responding to the issues of some inaccessible areas due security challenges, Makama said: There are 24 inaccessible polling units in the state.

We have, however, found alternatives and palaces for the electorate to cast their votes.
