The 2018 local government elections kicked off in several polling units across Edo State on a good footing, with high turnout of voters who were seen casting their ballots to elect new helmsmen at the councils.

Governor of Edo State, Mr Godwin Obaseki, cast his vote at Emokpae Primary School Mission at 12:30pm, amid cheers from a mammoth crowd that had gathered at the polling unit. He assured the people that the elections will be free and fair, as all parties are presented equal shots at the elective offices.

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) is certain of victory. And I appreciate the huge turnout for the polls. This shows that the electorates are truly committed to seeing the ‘wake and see’ phenomenon repeated at local council level,” he said.
