The electoral body had, last night, shifted the collation exercise to this morning, as results did not trickle in from the Local Government Areas yesterday.
At the moment, at least results from 14 LGAs have arrived Lokoja.
The collation Officers are already seated in the conference hall preparing to commence announcements of results.

He said he was there on the instruction of the Governor, Idris Wada.
While INEC says it can only accommodate one agent per political party in the hall where election results would be announced, PDP has four agents. The four PDP agents have taken attendance. But INEC has asked them to present one agent.
Scuffle Over APC Agent
A gorgeously dressed woman walks into the collation center citing an authority from the APC governorship candidate, Abubakar Audu, to act act as his agent at the center.
This created a little upset, as one person had been registered as the party’s agent.
INEC announced that the parties should sort themselves out and ensure only one agent is produced for the exercise.
“We now have 16 results,” the INEC official, anchoring the collation exercise, just announced,
This implies results of 16 LGAs have been processed at the Commission’s ICT.
Tally of the results is expected to commence soon.
Collation of results has commenced. Collation Officers from 18 LGAs are ready to present with their results.
INEC officials have called the Collation Officers according to LGAs’ to enter results into the Commission’s database.
