Prof. Olusola Eleka

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the Ekiti governorship election, Prof. Olusola Eleka, has not been able to vote due to the failure of the card reader to read his PVC.

The Nation reports that there is no assurance that another card reader will be brought by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

No use of incidence form has been filled to that effect.

According to The Nation, the PDP’s candidate  wife’s PVC was also not verified by the card reader.

It is only the PDP candidate’s PVC that was not read by the card reader in his unit.

Everyone else has been verified so far and voting is ongoing.

Meanwhile, a large turnout of voters still in a long queue in Eleka’s unit.

There was a long pause as electoral officers tried unsuccessfully to verify him.

Voting resumed after he stepped out of the ward.
