People exercising their franchise without any hindrance, acrimony or conflict.We are very grateful to God and we are ready to really accept the outcome. We will continue to do anything as a state to make sure that the election is peaceful and the outcome by the grace of God is acceptable”, he said

“INEC has done very well, as far as I’m concerned. Whether it is manual or electronic, you can see that the process is very peaceful and orderly. As soon as we came, the BVAS worked and they didn’t even have to snap me as I just used my fingers and my picture showed and then it ticked. It took not more 10 minutes for me to vote. INEC has done very well,” Mohammed said.
