He also thanked the Electorate for their mass turn out to exercise vote for candidates of their choice.

“I can say that I am quite satisfied with what I have seen and the reports I am getting from across the state. It is very peaceful, the turnout is quite impressive and the people are voting very freely for candidates of their preferences.

“There is no other political party in Ebonyi State, we have done quite well and no other political party in Ebonyi can boast of any reason why anybody in Ebonyi should vote for any party other than APC. We have performed, we have transformed the State, so Ebonyi people will not listen to promises, they are going to be listening to promises fulfilled under my administration.

“Every election is selection; an opportunity for the people to select whoever they like and that is the definition of the election.”
