The governorship election in Edo State begins peacefully with impressive voters’ turnout in most wards across the state.
However, there was no social distancing at Oba Market polling unit, Oredo LGA as voters get ready to cast their votes.
Although the situation does not suggest the likelihood of violence, there is a massive security presence in cities, towns, and villages.
There is compliance with restriction movement across the state.
Major streets, especially in Benin, don’t witness the usual traffic as the residents move to their respective polling stations for accreditation.
Also reports from other areas of Edo, such as Uzzebba, Igueben, Auchi, Ososo, Ekpoma, Jattu, and Ughoton, among other towns and villages, say there is impressive turnout and orderly situation.
