The Minister of State Budget and National Planning, Mr Clem Agba and Sen. Francis Alimikhena (APC Edo-North) on Saturday expressed satisfaction over the conduct of the Edo State governorship election.
Agba gave the commendation shortly after casting his vote at Uzani, Ward 3, Unit 8 in Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo.
The minister lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the voting process, saying that he was impressed with the exercise.
“I can only say this (about the voting process) here and if it is the reflection of the process in other places; then it is good,” he said.
On his part, Sen. Alemikhena said that he was impressed with the large turnout of voters.
“The turnout here today is totally unprecedented,” he said.
Alemikhena, however, expressed confidence that with the voter turnout and peaceful conduct of the poll, his party would win the election.
“This area is for APC and we expect 100-per-cent victory here; I am very confident that if everything goes well like this, our party, APC, is sure of victory,” he said.
