By Oluwaseun Sonde

The Governor of Edo State and the People Democratic Party PDP Gubernatorial Candidate, Godwin Obaseki has lamented that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was not prepared for the ongoing gubernatorial elections in the state.

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, while expressed disappointment over the conduct of the election.

Obaseki said INEC should have planned better for the ongoing election. “I expected 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”.

He lamented the slow process, saying card readers were equally very slow. “This is a sole day election, I expected better planning for this election. Card readers were very slow and that’s the situation everywhere”, he said.
