Martha’s Pen: Elekson

As they refuse to pick me as one of the INEC officials even though I registered, I have put it upon myself as a patriotic Nigerian to be my own personal election observer and also give you the latest news from my side of this electoral processes. Elekson as my humble Ibadan people will call it. Well, let start from the part where my roommate’s mum called her this morning and told her she couldn’t vote , because the information displayed on the system was not hers, even though the voters card has her details on it, don’t know whose fault this is, but one vote null, Next!!!!!!
Ehn ehn, back to us, I am at one of the polling units in Ibadan North, so voting started at 10am, but I thought they said 8am before, well African time abi, let’s not blame anybody. Security personnels are here though, well they have to be because I am seeing important dignitaries here.My friend called me though and said a fight broke out at his polling unit and no security personnels to help out “Well, problem ti eh niyen” ( That is his own problem) , Security is not a challenge for us here.
Here sha, if you have back ache, just stay in your house or look for someone with no back ache to help you check your name, because you have to bend like you want to twerk in order to check your name, as the list are on the floor , with stones placed on them to avoid ” Fly Away”.
After being on the queue for over an hour, let me tell you the announcement that was made” Card reader has stopped working ” , “Esu Pofo” ( The devil has lost) ,me sef don’t know what to do or say, well, you people go and call your engineers oh, to fix it or we all wait for network because me I am not leaving this place till I vote. I gave you people one week before, now I must do the needful. Thank you oh, next???
Don’t forget to share your experience, let us all be aware.
