The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that most of the voters who trooped out to cast their votes were seen buying foods, soft drinks, bottle water, biscuits, chin-chin, puff-puff (Deep fried dough), biscuits and other items.
Some of the vendors who spoke with NAN said they made good money from voters at the polling units.
A food vendor, Mrs Opeyemi Ogundele, said: “I made some money today as many people bought from me and I am happy.”
Mr Daniel Balogun, a soft drink and bottle water seller, also said he made money as many people bought from him.
Miss Tolulope Adeyemi, a small chops seller, also said many people patronised her, which made her happy.
“I am delighted as many people patronised me today,” she said.
Musa Ibrahim, a cigarette, kolanut, bitter cola vendor, also expressed satisfaction with the sales he made at polling units, adding that the large crowd was a blessing to him.
NAN also reports that the election grounded commercial and business activities as all shops were closed while vehicular movement was also restricted as directed by the state government. (NAN)
