The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Anambra governorship election, Valentine Ozigbo has expressed worry over the delay he experienced before casting his vote.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Ozigbo arrived at PU 010, Social Centre, Amesi, Aguata Local Government Area, at 10:40 a.m to cast his vote in the company of his family members and supporters.
Addressing journalists after casting his vote, Ozigbo expressed disappointment in the delay caused by the use of the Biomodal Voters Authentication System (BVAS).
He, however, praised INEC for introducing the machine into the voting system.
Ozigbo said, “For me, it is a mixed feeling. On one hand, I am thankful to God that I have been able to vote and the smooth sailing. However, I am a bit worried about the number of minutes it took us to get the voting done.
“It took a while to try all the biometrics. We tried the first thumb, second thumb, then the picture and came back failed. At some point, the network failed. We had to hotspot and eventually it worked.
“It took me more than 20 minutes to cast my vote, I’m worried.”
