Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State was unable to get accredited at his Agassa Uvete Unit 11 polling Unit, Okene LG, due to faulty Card Reader Machine.
Bello who along with his wives, Hajia Rasheeda and Hajia Amina, stood on line for over an hour, while INEC officials went in frantic search for replacement, expressed his disappointment at the development.
He, however, expressed the hope that his was an isolated case.
“I am disappointed at INEC, and I hope my own is an isolated case,” he said.
INEC, as at the time of filing this story, had secured a replacement, and the governor was able to cast his vote.
The governor later voted at about 8:45am
