There is a massive turnout of voters at some polling units in the ongoing Ekiti State Governorship election.

Voters were being accredited with the aid of the Bimodal Voter Authentication System(BVAS) and given the ballot to vote.

Amidst the peaceful conduct of voters who are in a long queue, Daily Post reports that there were complaints in some of the units that the BVAS technology was slow.

However, the attention of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been drawn to areas, where BVAS seemed to be slow, for proper and swift action.

Apart from the military personnel stationed at entering ports between Ado and Iyin Ekiti and at border towns, operatives of the Department of State Services are also parading around to ensure orderliness and peaceful conduct of the poll in all the towns.

Some of the agents were also seen complaining about reported cases of vote-buying and such complaints were being handled by security operatives
