The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Edo State governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has expressed satisfaction with voters’ turnout in the ongoing today’s governorship election in the state.
Ize-Iyamu, who voted at 9:30am at polling unit 26, ward 5 in Iguododo community, Orionhwon Local Government Area of the state, expressed this after casting his vote.
He also commended officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for their preparation in the election.
The APC candidate expressed confidence of defeating the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Governor Godwin Obaseki in the election.
Ize-Iyamu said, “The rains showered early this morning but the turnout is impressive. INEC came out quite early with all the materials. They displayed the register on the wall making the accreditation very easy. Card readers are working and they (INEC) have a thermometer to check your temperature.
“In our own, we supplied facemasks to our people to comply with INEC regulations. I am also happy that they brought cubicles to ensure that people vote in privacy without anybody knowing who you voted for.
“They also have adequate policemen. We have two policemen per unit. That has really helped. The crowd has been orderly and peaceful. If what is happening here is what is happening in other places, I commend INEC and the security agencies.
“I am happy I have been able to vote. I am very confident of winning.”
