After performing the accreditation, he was full of praise for INEC, saying from the look of things, rigging may not be possible.
Buhari clad in native sparkling white Babariga with a white cap to match arrived with his aides and leuftunants and immediately made his way to the accreditation desk where the polling officials attended to him.
The former Head of State who was accompanied by his Aisha Buhari spent just five minutes to perform the accreditation before leaving the venue at 9.47am. He is expected back to the polling unit by 1pm as required by the law to cast his vote. Meanwhile accreditation of other voters continued at the polling unit with a very high turn- out of electorate.
Speaking shortly after accreditation, Buhari hailed INEC for the level of readiness exhibited in today's election.
"Well I like the integrity of the system, I am very pleased about it. That means that if people are allowed to vote rigging will be virtually impossible," he said.
On the performance of INEC so far, Buhari said " I think INEC has done very well and I have said it your colleagues elsewhere that from the their presentations at the Council of States which I happen to be a member this time around, INEC has done extremely well," he said.
