Three card readers have broken down at the polling unit of Governor Nasir El-Rufai in Kaduna.

The incident took place at Unit 024 Ungwar Sariki ward where the governor was expected to vote.

The three card readers developed a technical fault midway into accreditation and voting. As at the time of filing this report, INEC officials were making efforts to fix the situation.

Meanwhile, Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, and his wife Rachael, as well as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, experienced a minor glitch as the card reader failed to authenticate their fingerprints at their various polling units.

They, however, were eventually able to cast their ballot.

Reports from across the country indicate that the elections have been largely peaceful though blighted by late take-off in many places.
