Election progressing smoothly, says Obi

Anambra State Governor Mr Peter Obi has hailed Saturday’s governorship election in the state describing the exercise as smooth.

Obi voted at about 1.00 pm at his Agulu Ward 2, Unit 19 in Anaocha Local Government Area of the State and was accompanied by his wife, Mrs Margaret Obi.

Speaking to journalists after voting,  Obi said he did not come out on time because of the restriction that was announced by the security agencies and the electoral umpire.

” As far as I am concerned, in this unit, everything is going on smoothly. There has been no reports of violence here in Agulu, if any anybody has heard or knows , please let me know. But so far, so good”, he said.

On the restriction order by security forces, Governor Obi said it was in order and that it has helped in stopping possible violence and unfettered movement by people who, ordinarily have nothing to do with the election that was going on.

” We have been told before that there would be restriction of movement, that is why I was also restricted so much so that, I did not get here early. I am here now without any escort and I am going back to my Lodge without any escort. So the restriction of movement was for the benefit of all of us”, he said.
