Meanwhile, Mr John Yakubu, deputy governorship candidate of the PDP in ongoing gubernatorial poll in Edo, has described the simultaneous accreditation and voting in the process as a perfect process.

“Rather than doing accreditation and coming back later to cast your vote, you do everything the same time and this is very good.

“I am alright with the whole process so far and I hope it continues that way, although I am hearing that there are pockets of violence in few areas around the senatorial district,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Yakubu voted at 10.05 a.m. I  Unit 8, Ward 3, Esan North-East Local Government Area.
