Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra has called on the people of the state to come out en masse to exercise their franchise and ensure that their votes count.
Obiano spoke shortly after casting his vote at Eri Primary School in Aguleri, Anambra East Local Government Area at 9:50 a.m.
He said he was okay with the conduct of the governorship election so far in the state.
“I am okay with the election and I am confident of securing victory in the poll,” he told newsmen.
Obiano commended the people in the council area for their impressive turnout for the poll.
Also, UPP governorship candidate, Chief Osita Chidoka, voted at Obosi Central School at 10:05 a.m.
Chidoka, however, decried the late arrival of officials and materials to some polling units.
The PPA governorship candidate, Mr Godwin Ezeemo, also spoke in similar vein.
He said he had been out to his Umuchu Ward 2 since 8 a.m., but the electoral officers had yet to come, hours after. (NAN)
