In some of the polling units visited in Ilesa and Ile-Ife, majority of the voters came to the polling units with their smartphones, although security agents did not allow them to take them inside the cubicles to vote.

A security personnel,  who spoke with NAN on the condition of anonymity,  said the act was to check vote-buying.

He expressed the belief that the move had so far checked the incidence of  vote-buying at polling units.

Mr Jimmy George,  an election observer,  commended security agents for preventing voters from using their phones inside the cubicles.

George , who is the National Secretary of the National Committee of Patriots,  said the action of the security agents would minimise vote-buying in the election.

Meanwhile, accreditation and voting in  the election continued on a peaceful note in many polling units across the state.

At Unit 12A,  Ward 05 in Ile-Ife,  voters were seen on the queue peacefully with INEC.

It was also observed that the card reader machines were working perfectly at the polling unit visited by  NAN.
