#EkitiDecides2018: Card Reader Rejects Olusola Eleka PDP Candidate’s PVC
The PDP governorship candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, has still not been able to cast his ballot after the second attempt.
The deputy governor who got to his unit 07, ward 02 Okeruku voting center at 9.15am was immediately called by the presiding officer to vote but all efforts to have his PVC recognized by the card reader failed.
He expressed fear that if this could happen to him, others might also be disenfranchised because there was no alternative to the machine.
He said, “I cannot say I don’t have confidence in the electoral process but I have my fears.
“My card has been rejected twice now. It is amazing and they asked me if the card is bent or something but you all can see the card is not bent. The REC should do something about that.
“APC agents are going about distributing money to voters in the presence of INEC officials and security men.”
