Yahaya Bello of Kogi state has been reported to be unable to cast his vote at Agassa Okene-eba Ahachi ward unit 011 following some technical faults in the available card reader.
Owing to this, Governor Bello who is said to have been at the polling unit with his wives since 8am, has remained stranded.
Daily Trust reports that as officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were trying to fix the problem, the governor in disappointment, left the queue and returned to his car.
Newsmen also gathered that only one card reader was available at the polling unit.
Meanwhile, Continentour.com.ng reported that President Muhammadu Buhari’s first term is gradually winding up as Nigerians troop to the polls today, Saturday, February 23, to decide who will be Nigeria’s next president.
Although there are 72 presidential candidates slugging it out in the 2019 presidential elections, five candidates stand out among the rest:
President Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who wants to take Nigeria to “the next level”, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who wants to “make Nigeria work again, and Omoyele Sowore of the African Action Congress (AAC) who wants to “take Nigeria back”.
Others are Kingsley Moghalu of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) who wants to “offer Nigeria visionary, purposeful, competent leadership to build our future” and Fela Durotoye of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN) who wants “to build a coalition of ideas around a strong ideology of a New Nigeria where things work and everyone is working to make things work”.
