Nigeria’s President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu undergoing the processes for casting his votes in the Lagos State Governorship and House of Assembly elections at Unit 085, Ward 03, Alausa, Ikeja, the state capital, South-West Nigeria … Saturday.
Nigerian President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu voted at 9:35 AM at Unit 085, Ward 03, Alausa, Ikeja, the Lagos State capital, South-West Nigeria, amid tight security in the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections on Saturday.
Tinubu was accompanied by his wife, Oluremi and his daughter and the Lagos Market leader, Chief Folashade Ojo.
Tinubu’s Media Spokesperson, Mr. Dele Alake, told journalists after he voted that the President-elect will not be able to grant interviews till later in the evening.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that barriers were used to demarcate the unit into sections and designated areas for voters, journalists and security operatives, respectively, which is a different scenario from the previous situation during the February 25, 2023, Presidential and National Assembly elections.
I would be recalled that during the Presidential and National Assembly elections, hundreds of journalists and party supporters struggled to capture Tinubu’s arrival and voting.
INEC officials were early and had completely set up before 8:00 AM.
At exactly 8:30 AM, the Assistant Presiding Officer III, Miss Adebola Adeniyi, made an announcement, showed empty ballot boxes and the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machine and read out the election guidelines.
She said that 324 voters registered in the unit.
A combined team of personnel of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), the Department of State Services (DSS), the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), respectively, were on ground on electoral security deployment.
The heads of the various security organisations, including the Commissioner of Police inspected and patrolled the area before the arrival and departure of the President-elect.
