Accreditation of voters begins in Ondo governorship election

Accreditation of voters has begun across Ondo State as the people participate in today’s governorship election.

Accreditation began at 8a.m in many parts of the state.

Field reports indicate that there is no report of shortage of accreditation materials.

The state office of the Independent National Electoral Commission is being tightly guarded by a combined team of soldiers, policemen and civil defence operatives.

Security agents have also been posted across the state while there is a total restriction on movement.

Voting materials arrived most polling units before 8a.m.

The State Commander of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Shuaibu Issa, had to direct civil defence officials to convey stranded INEC officials from Cathedral area of Akure to their polling units by 9.20a.m.

The three main candidates are Governor Olusegun Mimiko (Labour Party); Rotimi Akeredolu (Action Congress of Nigeria); and Olusola Oke (Peoples Democratic Party).
