Businessman and governorship candidate Ifeanyi Ubah has cast his ballot in the ongoing Anambra election.

The candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) voted at polling unit 20 Otolo Ward 1, Nnofor Hall in Nnewi South LGA.

Speaking to reporters after exercising his franchise, Mr Ubah said he was satisfied with the turnout of voters.

However, he noted that there were delays in election materials reaching polling units.

He also voiced concerns over the slow accreditation process.

Meanwhile, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress Andy Uba cast his vote around 11:25 am.

He voted inside Saint Peter’s Catholic School, at the Uga Ward Polling Unit 7 of Aguata Local Government Area.

The voting process had initially been slowed by the late arrival of materials and officials.

Speaking after voting, Mr Uba expressed optimism of victory at the polls. He said in areas where the machines are malfunctioning, officials are fixing them.

“Right now, we have a little issue which they are coming to fix,” he said.

Asked about his chances of winning the election, he said: “I am very optimistic. You can see what is happening here. You don’t need to be told what is happening here.”
