The Governor who has been at the polling unit alongside his wives since 8am, has been unable to vote as at 9.10 am due to malfunctioning of the smart card reader. 

The governor who expressed disappointment over the development has just left the queue and returned to his car while officials of INEC are battling to address the technical issues.
