‘I Feel Sad’, Ex-Ogun Gov, Osoba Says As BVAS Prevents Him From Voting



Ogun State former Governor, Chief Olusegun Osoba has been disenfranchised after the newly introduced Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) failed to capture him.

The former governor and about three other voters were affected during the ongoing Presidential and National Assembly elections at Unit 15, Ward 14, Omololu House, Ibara Housing, Abeokuta.

Osoba was at his polling unit at about 11am to cast his vote, but could not be accredited as the BVAS machine failed to capture him.

The former governor left the polling unit for his residence which is few minutes away from the polling unit.

At exactly 2:13pm, the veteran journalist returned to the polling unit, but the machine failed to capture him for the second time.

“I feel sad,” Osoba told newsmen, saying he had accepted his fate.

He said any attempt to cast vote after being denied accreditation by the machine would amount to an overvoting.
