President Goodluck Jonathan has finally been accredited after a long wait caused by malfunctioning card readers.

The President initially arrived at his polling unit in Otuoke, Bayelsa State with his wife, Patience and mother at about 9:17am.

However after trials on three card readers, Jonathan could still not be accredited to vote.

The President left the scene with his wife and returned later to be manually accredited with the incident register of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Jonathan was finally cleared to vote at 11:04am.
