It also explained that because of their dense population, Apapa, Kosofe and Alimoso councils  are likely to have more wards and polling units after the delineation.

Addressing a stakeholoders’ meeting, the commission’s chairman, Justice Abdul Fatai Adeyinka  (retd), said the delineation of wards and creation of additional polling units would be  based on four criteria, which he said, are population, contiguity, geography and cultural  affinity.
