Boss Mustapha hails peaceful polls

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has described the conduct of the Edo governorship election as satisfactory.

Mr Mustapha said against popular predictions, “the election was quite peaceful except for a few and isolated skirmishes.”

“Nigeria has disappointed those who predicted massive disruption. The elections went well but for a few hiccups,” the SGF said in a statement Saturday.

He said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) did fairly well and could improve on its performance.

Meanwhile, in its preliminary report on Saturday, an election observation group, the Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA), said the exercise was mired in violence in some parts of the state.
