"We are indeed happy to report that the elections went on peacefully and orderly.

Martins, however, urged political parties, which may have issues with the polls, to seek redress through legal means.
He urged re-elected Governor Ibikunle Amosun to be magnanimous in victory.
"We call on Amosun to embrace co-contestants and members of other rival parties.
"The All Progressives Congress (APC), should run an all-inclusive government and extend hand of fellowship to the other parties in order to move the state forward," Martins said.
The Hope Political Party, United Progressive Party, Citizens Popular Party, Advanced Congress of Democrats, United Democratic Party and Alliance for Democracy, attended the conference.
