At the African Church, College Road, Ifako-Ijaiye area and Unit 6, Haruna, Ifako-Ijaiye, the card readers encountered some challenges.
The machine could not capture the finger prints of about six persons but the INEC officials on duty asked them to write their names on the incident list and also said that they would vote as earlier explained by INEC.
Lekan Abayomi, presiding officer, said the problem was not a serious one, as the machine could authenticate the card reader showing that they were not cloned. At the Unit 6, Haruna bus stop area, about 1,000 voters registered but only a little over 100 were accredited as at 10 am.
The situation is different at Negboje/Rando, Unit 068, Alausa, Ikeja. The card readers were not working and INEC officials were just relaxing as at 10.35am. Lawal Kamaldeen, presiding officer, said he had called the office and that they have promised to come to address the situation.
At the moment, voters who came for accreditation were only directed to look for their names on the list pasted on the wall and were also given number tags. So far, about 140 voters have come out for accreditation out of the 1,123 registered voters.
Kamaldeen said the number tags were given so that by the time the card readers start working, the process would be fast because they would be running against time since accreditation is expected to end by 1pm.
Meanwhile, at unit 47, ward C, Alausa, where Ahmed Tinubu, leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC was accredited, card readers were functioning well. Out of the 1,388 registered voters, over 200 have been accredited as at 11am.
Generally, the roads are free, and security officials are also friendly. In all the places visited, there is no incident of crisis. Accreditation is going on well.Follow Us on Social Media
