President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has voted at his Unit 085, Ward 03, Alausa, Ikeja Lagos.
Tinubu was accompanied by his wife, Oluremi and the Lagos Market leader, Chief Folashade Ojo.
Tinubu’s aide, Dele Alake, told journalists after he voted that the president-elect will not be able to grant interviews till later in the evening.
Barriers were used to demarcate the unit into sections and designated areas for voters, journalists and security operatives which is different from the previous situation.
In the Presidential and National Assembly elections which were held February 25, hundreds of journalists and party supporters struggled to capture Tinubu’s arrival and voting.
INEC officials arrived early and had completely set up before 8 a.m.
At exactly 8.30 a.m, Adebola Adeniyi, the Assistant Presiding Officer III, made an announcement, showed empty ballot boxes and the BVAS Machine and read out the election guidelines.
She said 324 voters registered in the unit.
A combined team of Police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, DSS, FRSC and Nigeria Immigration Service were on ground.
The heads of the various security organizations, including the commissioner of police, inspected and patrolled the area before the arrival and departure of the president-elect.
