The conduct of the Edo election has led the Catholic Bishop of the Sokoto Diocese, Reverend Bishop Mattew Kukah, to commend the people of the state for their conduct during the state’s governorship election on Saturday.
The clergyman who is a member of the National Peace Committee stated this on Tuesday during an interview on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily.
The clergyman stated that the conduct of the people of Edo is a legacy of efficiency which the entire country can emulate.
“The way they conducted themselves and I think in every sense of the word, they left us a legacy of efficiency,” he said.
Speaking further, the Bishop also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), security agencies, and civil society groups for their roles in the election.
“We worked very closely with INEC and I must commend the INEC chairman for his incredible leadership, zeal and enthusiasm.
“The Inspector-General of Police kept to his word on the promises he made to the people of Edo State and to the peace committee,” he said.
