#OndoDecides2020: I Would Win Despite INEC Creating Problems – Jegede

Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Ondo governorship election, has expressed confidence that he would win the election.

Naija News reports that Jegede had had difficulties voting during the ongoing election.

Smart Card Reader could not read his card and he was asked to step aside for other voters to vote.

Smart Card Reader could not also read PVC of Eno, Jegede’s wife but his daughter voted without any hitch.

After about 10 minutes, Jegede and his wife voted after the machine was rectified.

Speaking to newsmen after voting, Jegede accused the Independent National Electoral Commission of “creating a problem”.

According to the PDP candidate, INEC should be asked why the card reader stopped functioning when it was his turn to vote.

“INEC is creating a problem. Their machine stopped working when it was my turn to vote,” Jegede said.

“I had to protest and they said the machine was rectified. But despite all these hitches, there has not been major disruption. But I don’t know what is happening in remote areas.

“The turnout has been massive, voters conducted themselves well. I am aware that there is pocket of violence in Ijomu area.

“I also heard of an incident of vote-buying.”
