Slow start, palpable lull and perceived inactivity appear trailing the governorship election slated for today in Bayelsa State.

Checks across Yenagoa, the state capital by TribuneOnline this morning revealed some traits of slowness in the distribution of election materials by INEC to various polling centres.

At Amarata RAC centre even as of 8:30a.m, distribution of election materials was yet to commence. Observers from various organisations were seen waiting for INEC officials.
