Chief Victor Umeh, the Director-General of the Obiano Campaign Oganisation, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for ensuring that the electoral process was not manipulated.
He said that the outcome of the election showed a great beginning for the nation’s democracy.
“There was palpable tension that the result will be manipulated, but today, all the results at the Local Government Areas were declared at the INEC headquarters.
“This is what we wish for the country, an electoral process where the people are allowed to choose their leaders,” he said.
Mr Sam Oraegbulam, the state Chairman of Hope Democratic Party, said there was an improvement from the other elections conducted by INEC in the state.
