President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, accompanied by his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, cast his vote in the ongoing Governorship and State House of Assembly election this morning. That was at his polling unit 085 on Kadiri Street, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.
Tinubu tweeted shortly after casting his vote “I just joined other Nigerians in exercising my civic duty in the ongoing governorship and state assembly elections. I encourage you all to go out and vote peacefully”.
The officers of the Department of State Security arrived at the polling unit of the president-elect in Ikeja in large numbers.
The presence of the security officials is in accordance with their duty to provide security protocol for Tinubu as the president-elect.
The governorship and the state houses of assembly elections are taking place today across 28 out of the 36 states of the federation.
The state elections, the second phase of the 2023 General Elections were initially scheduled for 11 March but deferred by one week following a Court of Appeal order granting the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) permission to reconfigure the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) for the exercise.
