Ondo State governor, Olusegun Mimiko has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) connived with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to rig the Ondo governorship polls with malfunctioning card readers.
Mimko also said the APC and other opposition parties were inducing voters.
The governor was allowed to vote at Unit 20 Ward 07 in the Ondo West Local Government Area of the state, even as the card reader rejected his fingerprints.
He said, “What is happening in Ondo State presently is anarchy. The INEC and APC are trying to rig the poll with the use of malfunctioning card readers and inducement of voters.
“The result I am getting all round the state shows that INEC is not for a free and fair election. Imagine with different calls we made to postpone this election, they refused and went ahead. Now that our people have made up their mind to vote for us, they decided to rig with the use of malfunctioning card readers and giving money to people in order to get votes.
“This time around, we shall resist them. We will stand firm and defend our votes. I enjoin all our people to be vigilant and defend their votes especially at the collation centres. We were told that they have fake result sheets. So, if the result at the polling units do not tally with the one at collation centres, we will resist it.”
