The Police Commissioner in Edo, Chris Ezike, on Saturday commended the All Progressives Congress (APC) delegates for the peaceful conduct of the accreditation at the ongoing Edo 2016 Governorship primary election.
Ezike told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the APC Governorship primary election at Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin, that he was impressed with the manner delegates have conducted themselves.
According to the police commissioner, I am satisfied with the accreditation exercise.
“The accreditation was orderly, free and fair, and I believe the delegates will attest to the fact that it was a smooth exercise.
“Unauthorized persons were taken care of and the security situation was in order,” Ezike said
A former State House of Assembly Speaker, Mr Thomas Okosun, said the primary election accreditation was worthy of emulation, adding that there was no room for discussion among the delegates during the exercise.
“Immediately a delegate is through with the accreditation, the security personnel will escort such delegate to the vehicle that will convey the delegates to the venue of the election.
“The exercise displayed love and understanding among the APC delegates and as such, the delegates should support whosoever emerges as candidate of the party,” Okunsun said.
On his part, former House of Representatives member, Abdul Oroh, said the accreditation simply indicates that it is purely a party affair that brings everybody together.
“At the end of the day we will all support the winner in good faith,” Oroh said. (NAN)
