Tinubu is one of the leading presidential candidates contesting to succeed incumbent

President Muhammadu Buhari. During his campaign, the APC flag bearer had vowed

to win Saturday’s election.


As of 9:50 am, voting was yet to commence at the polling unit as voters waited for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials.

The former governor of Lagos state was also yet to arrive at the venue for accreditation and voting.

The delay in the commencement of voting comes despite INEC’s directive that voting would commence by 8:30 am.

At the venue, the EFCC officials were seen alongside other security operatives on the ground to ensure a peaceful atmosphere and clampdown on suspected fraudulent activities during the elections.

On Friday, the EFCC intercepted the sum of N32.4 million suspected to be for buying votes in the state.


Abdulrasheed Bawa, the EFCC chairperson, had earlier advised operatives of the agency assigned to monitor elections “to show courage and not give room for unscrupulous persons to undermine the integrity of the elections through financial inducement”.
