The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede, is expecting an outright victory in the ongoing governorship election in the state.
Jegede spoke to reporters after casting his vote at Polling Unit 9, Ward 2 in Akure South local government area of the state.
He, however, took a swipe at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the conduct of the election.
He added that the commission fared better in the conduct of the election in Edo.
The PDP candidate also accused the commission of creating problems for voters at his polling unit.
Jegede said: “I expect I will win.
“But I plead with INEC to improve on its performance. The performance of Edo was very good.
“Here, at this polling unit, the voters have conducted themselves in an orderly and peaceful manner, and turn out has been massive.”
“Unfortunately, it is INEC that is creating the problems for our voters, not the voters creating problems for INEC.”
He also called for more focus on the voting areas.
“They will claim to be observers or INEC officials but they stay directly behind those who are voting, giving signals to those people to go and collect money,” he added.
