Scores of voters at ward 11, unit 22, Olusomi  Compound, Abeokuta-North Local Government area of Ogun state where former President Olusegun Obasanjo is billed to cast his vote have been stranded as the officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission were yet to arrive as at 912am.

Many prospective voters were seen at the polling centre hanging around awaiting the arrival of the INEC offcials with electoral materials.

The media aide to Obasanjo, Kehinde Akinyemi, however, told The PUNCH that his boss was ready to cast his vote but the failure of the INEC officials to arrive forced him to stay put.

Akinyemi said, “The former President is at his house and would cast his vote as soon as the INEC officials arrive.
