He also called on the electorate to vote for the candidate of their choice.
Mr. Jegede spoke while voting at his Unit 9 Ward 2, Gbogi/Isikan, Sacred Heart Primary School 1 in Akure South Local Government Area.
He expressed satisfaction with the voting process, saying it was peaceful and orderly.
Mr. Jegede, however, urged INEC to tackle the challenge of faulty smart card readers in polling units.
“I have discussed with the REC Ondo State on the problems with card readers at most polling units,’’ he added.
Also speaking, the governorship candidate of the Alliance for Democracy, Olusola Oke, lamented the malfunctioning of the card readers deployed by INEC.
Mr. Oke said this in an interview with journalists after he had voted at his Igbo Ward III Polling Unit 005.
“I am not easily frustrated, but it is embarrassing as a candidate that the card reader could not easily capture my hand,’’ he said.
Mr. Oke noted that the electoral process in the country was not a perfect one yet.
The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) reports that Mr. Oke voted at 9.17 a.m.
The AD candidate, however, said he was impressed with the turnout of voters in Ilaje council area.(NAN) SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
