The reader failed to recognise the voter card of Jegede, and his wife, Eno, at polling unit 009.
Hours after arriving the polling unit at Sacred Heart, he was yet to cast his vote.
He was told the machine is faulty when it was their turn to cast their vote.
The PDP candidate has been at the polling unit since 9 am and waited on the queue for almost two hours.
When it was his turn to accredit and cast his vote, his temperature and that of his wife was captured but the card reader could not capture their PVC.
“They said the machine is faulty,” Jegede said while other voters were called to be accredited.
