Onigbanjo said he had to encourage many to vote to make a difference for the development of the area and had to defy the rain be part of the process.

Meanwhile, another septuagenarian and partially blind, Bamidele Olupo, urged the Independent Electoral Commission to make election process easier for aged people.

“If not for the help of people around me, I won’t have been part of this exercise because of the stress of going out to find your polling centre and name during accreditation. “My sight is very poor, but I still take it upon myself to exercise my civic right. he said.
