Giving INEC pass mark for the successful conduct of the election, Ojukwu said that he was very proud of the general conduct of the  election, which according to him, had set a pattern that would guide the nation in  future elections.

He said, “the Anambra election was exceptional. It is the best I have ever seen in Nigeria. Though I haven’t been to too many abroad but certainly it was good, it was disciplined, it was orderly and what I am looking forward to is that this has produced a pattern we are looking for, something we can always point at and say do like Anambra.

“I am absolutely elated by the decision of Anambra people to elect Governor  Obi for a second term. Let me use this opportunity to thank the people of Anambra State for their loyalty, diligence and support.  Anambra. You will not go wrong”, he said
