Boiled with the eagerness to vote in a nation that cares less for its people, a septuagenarian, Madam Modupe Omojuwa, walked 100 meters from her home to vote in the ongoing local government elections in Ondo State.

According to Ondo State Television report, the septuagenarian was spotted at unit 5, Methodist Church, Igodan-Lisa in Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.

The septuagenarian, who was quickly attended to at 11.05am, was enthusiastic as it showed on her face.
It was learnt that she waited under a tree after accreditation for voting which commenced at 12 noon on Saturday.

The voting which commenced with accreditation at 8am had over 70 electoral observers drawn from among chairmen and commissioners of State Electoral Commissions in the country.

Over 30 international observers were part of the observers drawn by the Ondo State Electoral Commission to monitor the local government election in the state.

The 70 observers were led by Mrs. Gloria Ukpong, chairman of Akwa Ibom State Electoral Commission. She commended the electoral process and told journalists that the Forum of State Electoral Commission Chairmen were in Ondo State to have a first-hand experience of the state’s electoral process.
