Drama as card reader rejects Obasanjo’s fingerprint seven times

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo was a victim of a malfunctioned card reader, as the machine rejected his fingerprint seven times, before the problem was eventually resolved.

Mr Obasnjo later cast his votes at about 11.15 a.m yesterday.

He voted at Ward 11, Polling Unit 22 in Olusomi compound, Totoro community in Abeokuta North Local Government Area of the State.

“I went through the process, they put my PVC in the card reader then they have a bit of problems sorting my thumbprint and then when they were able to sort it out, they made me to go through the process of voting. They gave me the ballot papers for the Presidential, Senate and the House of Representatives and it was very orderly,” Mr Obasanjo told journalists.

He said he had two hours delay at the polling booth, but still expressed satisfaction with what he described as the smooth conduct of the process.

Mr Obasanjo said the rejection of his fingerprint by the card reader might be as a result of having used his palm on oily substance at home.
