The Edo state governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki hails the Edo people for their performance in the local government electioneering process. The governor noted that the election results reflected the wish of the people and also demonstrated the dominance of PDP in Edo state.

He said, there was no violence during the electioneering process which portrayed the Edo people as democratically mature.

“We have a situation room where we monitored the election process across the State and want to thank the people. You can see that we are democratically mature in Edo State, in terms of the way the election was conducted. “I was surprised at the diligence of the Edo State Independent Electoral Commission (EDSIEC).

I went around and saw the number of polling units mounted by EDSIEC and the various electoral officers in the three metropolitan local government areas and it was quite impressive.

The turnout was fair as expected and it shows that we can conduct elections without disrupting economic and social activities. “The people voted and went about their various activities for the weekend.

Overall, I believe we have done well. It was a free and fair election. The mass participation and dominance of PDP as a party in the State was clearly exhibited in this election.” – Obaseki stated.
