Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Fela Durotoye, the presidential candidate of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), both residents of Victoria Garden City (VGC), Lagos, on Saturday voted at same polling unit–Code 33, Unit 2 in the estate.

Osinbajo, who arrived at the unit at 10:28 a.m, voted at 10:53 a.m. while Durotoye voted at 12: 11 p.m.

Mr Adetokunbo Ladega, Chairman, VGC, Property Owners and Residents Association, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that he was excited having two key players in the presidential contest living in the community.

According to him, it is a rare feat which makes him feel VGC is the right place to live in.

He said that VGC was a very large community which had two main polling units.

“We are a very large community, with a little over 5000 registered voters.

“So, we know from previous experience that there is always a need to put in place effective crowd management,” he said

NAN reports that the conduct has been peaceful and hitch-free as residents, who massively turned out, sat calmly while the exercise went on.
