Our correspondent gathered that the former Governor had earlier visited his pulling unit twice at the GRA ward 14 Ibara Unit 1 in Ibara Housing Estate Abeokuta but his face and fingerprints could not display on the BVAS machine and as a result, he was unable to exercise his franchise.
It was observed that voters turned out in large numbers to cast their votes at the pulling unit but the former Governor was denied as a result of BVAS failure.
Speaking to journalists shortly after he was unable to exercise his civic duty, Osoba hinted that he had earlier visited the Polling unit in the morning with the voters card he used for 2019 elections and he was denied to vote due to the failure of BVAS in capturing his face and fingerprints.
Osoba further explained that he decided not to vote because he doesn’t want situation where BVAS will not captured a vote that is not captured in the unit therefore better for him to save hundreds of votes than to use his one vote because he want to insist on voting to lead to cancelation of electoral process in the unit.
The former Governor who expressed disappointment with the situation said he was encouraged with the huge turnout of the voters in the polling unit.
