Olusegun Agbaje, the Ondo State Resident Electoral Commissioner, on Sunday said the results of the just concluded Presidential and National Assembly elections were not ready as collation of results is still ongoing at the 18 local governments in the state.
While addressing journalists at the INEC headquarters in Alagbaka, Akure, Agbaje, who said he had spoken with his officials at the various local governments, stressed that results would come in later in the day.
“Results are still being collated at the various local governments. The feelers we get from our officials in the local government are that they are rounding off the process of collating results. We should start expecting results later in the day,” Agbaje said.
While adding that the elections have been successful so far, Agbaje said the challenges that were created by malfunctioned card readers were minimal in the state.
“I can conveniently tell you that the Presidential and the National Assembly elections have been successful in Ondo State. In fact, I will want to give INEC a 70 percent pass mark. The card readers worked perfectly well in Ondo State; there were no issues with the card readers except for few instances,” Agbaje added.
