Eyitayo Jegede, the PDP candidate in Saturday’s governorship election, has expressed satisfaction with the accreditation and voting process.
He also called on the electorate to vote for the candidate of their choice.
Mr. Jegede spoke while voting at his Unit 9 Ward 2, Gbogi/Isikan, Sacred Heart Primary School 1 in Akure South Local Government Area.
He expressed satisfaction with the voting process, saying it was peaceful and orderly.
Mr. Jegede, however, urged INEC to tackle the challenge of faulty smart card readers in polling units.
“I have discussed with the REC Ondo State on the problems with card readers at most polling units,’’ he added.
Also speaking, the governorship candidate of the Alliance for Democracy, Olusola Oke, lamented the malfunctioning of the card readers deployed by INEC.
Mr. Oke said this in an interview with journalists after he had voted at his Igbo Ward III Polling Unit 005.
“I am not easily frustrated, but it is embarrassing as a candidate that the card reader could not easily capture my hand,’’ he said.
Mr. Oke noted that the electoral process in the country was not a perfect one yet.
The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) reports that Mr. Oke voted at 9.17 a.m.
The AD candidate, however, said he was impressed with the turnout of voters in Ilaje council area.(NAN)
