Okei-Odumakin also commended the security agents for displaying high sense of professionalism in discharging their duties.

She also commended politicians for displaying high sense of good conduct so far in the election.
“So far so good. The election is going on smoothly without any report of ballot snatching or thuggery, ‘’ Okei-Odumakin said.
