Finally, Jonathan is cleared to vote

President Goodluck Jonathan has finally been accredited at polling unit 13 in his hometown Otazi in Otueke, Bayelsa State.

Mr. Jonathan’s accreditation was done using the Independent National Electoral Commission’s incident register, after three card readers failed to capture his biometrics.

While leaving the location after a successful accreditation, the president urged Nigerians to be patient with the electoral body as other options have been made available if the card reader fails, like it did with him.

He had earlier said no sacrifice is too much for Nigeria. He encouraged other voters to be patient with INEC in getting their accreditation done.

The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Attahiru Jega, had said that if the card reader fails to capture a voter’s biometrics, the commission’s staff at the polling units will resort to manual accreditation.

    My President, your love for your country is immeasurable! Nigerians will surely bring you back.

      Back where, Otueke?

      Nigerians will vote for GEJ en masse no doubt about it. It is a taboo for an incumbent president to lose election.

    He should have known by now that his time is up. We are tired of him.

  • DecodeDaRiddle

    Facts reaching us indicate that some card readers have their protective film over the biometric section of the card reader. It has prevented people from voting but definitely not in GEJ’s case because others were accredited and he alone had his 3 times.
    Please if there are still cases out there where you are, do pass this on to the INEC staff there.

    Every one can poke fun at the fact that the President found it difficult to get accredited. Just imagine this was General Buhari? Your guess is as good as mine. Saharareporters and premiumtimesng would have been a washed with screaming headlines about the “plans” of the president, INEC and of course his party to rig. But since it’s PDP its okay.
