He attributed the success to the perfect arrangements put in place by the commission in collaboration with critical stakeholders like the parties, security agencies and the civil society organisations.

The resident electoral commissioner also lauded the voters for their positive attitude to the election which, he added, was largely responsible for the successful conduct of the polls.

He said that the preparations for the election were guided by the experiences of the commission in the last general election, saying that the smooth and timely arrival of materials and electoral personnel underscored the success achieved.

Pai said that the collation of the results from the 3 018 polling units at the 239 wards in the state had also commenced, adding that collation at state level would not start earlier than 12 midnight.
