The PDP candidate and his wife had arrived at the venue at about 9:07am and later joined the queue to cast their votes.

They waited for about two hours in the queue before it got to their turn at about 11:02am.

However, the smart card reader failed to read their thumbprints while they stepped aside for the next voter in the queue to get accredited.

A few moments later, the issue was resolved and the couple casted their ballots.

Despite the development, Mr. Jegede condemned the setback and faulted the long voting time and questioned jokingly why the card reader failed at a time when he and his wife were about to cast their votes.

The PDP candidate also decried the absence of tech experts from INEC at his polling unit.
