Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Ondo governorship election, has won his polling unit.

He polled 220 votes to defeat Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who scored 60 and Agboola Ajayi of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) who polled seven votes.

Jegede votes at Unit 009, Ward 2, Akure LG located inside Sacred Heart Primary School, Cathedral area of Akure.

At the second unit in the primary school, Jegede polled 158 votes to defeat APC candidate who polled 43 and ZLP candidate Ajayi Agboola who polled four votes.

Naija News reports that Jegede had expressed confidence that he would win the election.

The PDP 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.
