This Day reports that Sen. Bola Tinubu, the incoming president, cast his ballot at 9.35 a.m. in Unit 085, Ward 03, Alausa, Ikeja, amidst heavy security for the Saturday elections for governor and the national assembly.
Oluremi, Tinubu's wife, and Chief Folashade Ojo, the head of the Lagos Market, were in attendance.
After casting his ballot, Mr. Dele Alake, his media spokesman, informed the media that the president-elect would not be able to conduct interviews until later that evening.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that, in contrast to the previous situation, barriers were used to divide the unit into sections and designate areas for voters, journalists, and security personnel.
NAN recalls that hundreds of reporters and party members battled to get pictures of Tinubu's arrival and voting during the Presidential and National Assembly elections on February 25.
Officials from INEC arrived early and had everything set up before 8 a.m.
The Assistant Presiding Officer III, Miss Adebola Adeniyi, made an announcement at precisely 8.30 a.m., displayed empty ballot boxes and the BVAS Machine, and read the election rules.
According to her, the unit had 324 registered voters.
There was a joint team from the Nigeria Immigration Service, the DSS, the FRSC, and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps on the scene.
Before the president-elect arrived and left, the area was inspected and patrolled by the leaders of the various security organizations, including the police commissioner. (NAN)
