Nollywood actress, Adunni Ade has jumped on social media to cry out over her inability to locate her polling unit ahead of Saturday, February 25 presidential election.

She recently had her say via her Instagram page, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to her, she has done everything she can to get the location, and she even tried using Google maps at some point, all to no avail.

Adunni added that she even visited the location INEC directed her to, but that belongs to a different polling unit.


“It shouldn’t be this hard! I have done everything I can! Google maps having me run around like a headless chicken all in the name of finding polling unit! No one in this darn area knows where the polling units are! Can somebody? Anybody! Help me locate my EXACT POLLING UNIT! @inecnigeria where is my polling unit??”

“Note: I have visited the location INEC directed me to but that belongs to a different polling unit. The last 3 numbers on your card determines the location. 019 is idado,020 is Agungi and so on. Inec locator is taking me to Idado. Which is false.”


Nollywood is a sobriquet that originally referred to the Nigerian film industry. The origin of the term dates back to the early 2000s, traced to an article in The New York Times. Due to the history of evolving meanings and contexts, there is no clear or agreed-upon definition for the term, which has made it a subject to several controversies.

The origin of the term “Nollywood” remains unclear; Jonathan Haynes traced the earliest usage of the word to a 2002 article by Matt Steinglass in the New York Times, where it was used to describe Nigerian cinema.

Charles Igwe noted that Norimitsu Onishi also used the name in a September 2002 article he wrote for the New York Times. The term continues to be used in the media to refer to the Nigerian film industry, with its definition later assumed to be a portmanteau of the words “Nigeria” and “Hollywood”, the American major film hub.

Film-making in Nigeria is divided largely along regional, and marginally ethnic and religious lines. Thus, there are distinct film industries – each seeking to portray the concern of the particular section and ethnicity it represents. However, there is the English-language film industry which is a melting pot for filmmaking and filmmakers from most of the regional industries.
