As early as 6 am, residents of Ado Ekiti trooped out in their numbers to participate in today’s governorship election holding across the 16 Local Government Areas of Ekiti State.

Over seven hundred thousand voters are expected to cast their ballots for either of the ten candidates vying for the governor’s office.

While many trekked long distances following the restriction on vehicular movements, a few went to their polling units by commercial motor bikes.

At the different polling units visited in the state capital, voters were seen checking their names on the displayed voter registers while others were on queues.
