By Samuel Faleye, Akure
The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Saturday’s governorship poll, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede has blames the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), accusing it of flooding Akure, the Ondo State capital with faulty card reading devices.
Addressing the media shortly after casting his vote at about 11:34am, Jegede stated that malfunctioning card readers are part of the ploy by the commission to stop his supporters from voting for him at the poll.
He said he was glad that he was reinstated as a candidate but was unhappy that many of the card reader brought to his constituency in Akure were faulty.
He said he was concerned why it was taking INEC so long to replace the malfunctioning card readers. He called on his supporter to stay on the queues and make sure they vote.
