Checks conducted at all the wards where the exercise took place revealed that it was characterized by orderliness and proper coordination by the leadership of the party.
Reports from wards visited by Vanguard showed that arrival of voting materials from the National Headquarters of the party in Abuja was prompt while party officials sent to oversee the exercise came early before the scheduled time to ensure success at the end of the congresses.
