Mr Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the Ondo governorship poll, says the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is creating problem at his polling unit.

Jegede said INEC should be held responsible for the malfunctioning card readers in his unit and others.

“The card reader stopped functioning when it was my turn to vote. Despite the hitches l will win,” he told reporters after he and his wife voted about 11.10 am after the machine was rectified.

Jegede had been in the queue since 9.00am and when the smart card reader could not read his card he was asked to step aside for other voters to vote.

“INEC is creating a problem. Their machine stopped working when it was my turn to vote. I had to protest and they said the machine was rectified.

“But despite all these hitches, there has not been major disruption. But I don’t know what is happening in remote areas.

“The turnout has been massive, voters conducted themselves well. I am aware that there is pocket of violence in Ijomu area. I also heard of an incident of vote-buying,” he said.
