The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has just cast his vote.
He voted at 9:30 am at polling unit 26, ward 5 in Iguododo community, Orionhwon Local Government Area
He expressed the confidence that he would win the poll if the peaceful situation at his unit was the same everywhere.
He commended INEC for good arrangements put in place for the poll.
He said, “The accreditation is very easy, I have done that and they gave me the ballot paper. Where the ballot box is placed is covered and that means you can vote with some level of privacy.
“I cannot say that what is happening here is happening all over the state because the communication is not very good.
“I am happy I have been able to vote. I am very confident of winning and I just hope what is happening here is replicated all over the state.”
