The over 1,000 youth who stormed the venue of the convention insisted that the list of delegates for the election contained under-aged delegates.
With the rowdy situation at the election ground, security personnel on deployment to the Ijaw House venue of the election suggested that the event be shifted to the following day to avoid the election extending into the night as it was already getting late.
However, members of the Electoral Committee of INC insisted on conducting the elections, promising to conclude on time.
