The Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Service, Mr Babatunde Fowler, has said the right candidate would emerge in Saturday’s presidential elections.
Fowler, who spoke with our correspondents at his polling unit, PU:24/08/04/033 in Victoria Garden City, Lekki, Lagos, said the voters were ready to vote for the candidates of their choice.
Reacting to the late arrival of officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission officials, who arrived at about 8:55 am, he said there was no agitation as everything seemed organised.
“I think some of the officials of VGC want to make sure that everything is orderly so they are asking people to write down their names before the arrival of INEC officials,” he said.
The Chairman, VGC Property Owners and Residents Association, Mr Segun Ladega, said over 5, 000 voters were registered at the polling unit, adding that at least 3,000 people were expected to vote.
“Residents have maintained their cool, we have confidence in the state and the system and we are aware there could be minor hitches.
It has been our experience over the past few electoral cycles that things start a little behind time here and it’s quite understandable. We are prepared for today,” he said.
He explained that the delay in the arrival of INEC officials might have made some people to stay back at home.
