Adeleke had voted some minutes after 8am
Speaking with Journalists after exercising his right, he asserted his optimism at victory, while raising concerns over the card readers.
He said: “I hope the card readers work, because it took process before the card reader started working. So far, so good, it has been peaceful.
“We will have a fair election. I am very optimistic that I am going to win this election.”
Responding to questions on accusations against him before election, Adeleke said that such moves by his opponent, were borne out of fear.
“All allegations levelled against me were false. It is all lies.
“They tried to make sure that I do not stand this election. I am qualified, I have all it takes. They are afraid of me, because they know that in a free and fair election, I am going to win. And by the special grace of God, that is what is going to happen. I am going to win.”
