Some voters had commended the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies for a hitch-free governorship election.

In Okitipupa, they said that the card readers functioned seamlessly in the area making the accreditation and voting process to be fast.

They also lauded the security agencies for their prompt action to stop criminality at polling centres.

Mr Wale Adekoya, a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in the area, told NAN that there was no challenge to the card readers usage.

“I have to commend INEC for their early distribution of materials, the punctuality of their staff as well as the effective functioning of the card reader machines,” he said.

An Alliance for Democracy agent, Mr Rotimi Olasenoja, also commended security agents for their prompt action to make the election credible.
” We have enough security agents on ground and they are doing their job,” he said

Mrs Adewunmi Oloko, an APC supporter, also said the election was fair and credible.

Mr Dare John, INEC’s Presiding Officer for Okitipupa Ward 2, Unit 017, said that the voters were cooperative and orderly in their conduct, promoting a smooth electoral process.

“The electorate cooperated with us and were orderly too and we have no issue with the card reader machine,” John said.

A Superintendent of Police and Head of the police patrol team, Earnest Ejong, also said that no suspect was arrested so far in connection with election crime.
