The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has expressed disappointment over the conduct of the ongoing governorship election in the state.
Obaseki lamented that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was not prepared for the elections. The governor spoke after waiting for over one hour on the queue before casting his vote at Polling Unit 19, Ward 4, Oredo Local Government Area, on Saturday.
He lamented the slow process, saying card readers were equally very slow. Obaseki explained that INEC should have planned better for the ongoing election.
He said: “I expected that INEC would have prepared better for this election. I waited for one and half hour on the queue before exercising my franchise, it’s a bit disappointing.
“Giving that this is a sole day election, I expected better planning for this election.
“Card readers were very slow and that’s the situation everywhere.”
