Naija News reports that Jegede and his wife, Eno, arrived at Ward 2, Polling Unit 10, Akure South Local Government, around 09:00 am.
Speaking to The Punch, he said he said he refused to jump the queue at his polling unit so as to serve as an example to the good people of the state.
According to the former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, “Don’t forget that I am a citizen of this state. The same blood that flows in my veins flows in their veins. It is only fair that we stay where we should be.
“The truth is that so many people came here so early and it will be unfair for me to jump the queue. We must lay good examples, we must lay good narratives.”
