Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki on Saturday has faulted the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC for the glitch experienced during the Edo polls.
Obaseki revealed his surprise and shock at the slowness of card readers after he cast his vote despite INEC had gave assurance that such problems would be avoided.
“This would have been much better organised. Today, the card readers were very slow and that is the situation across most high-voting population centres in Oredo from the reports I’ve gotten till now. For me, that’s a bit worrying”, he began.

“If I, as Governor, could stand in the queue for more than one and a half hour to cast my vote, you can imagine what other people are going through across major voting centres in Oredo. I am surprised, and shocked because this was touted and INEC gave us assurances that nothing like this would happen”, Obaseki said.
