“The process is good and going on smoothly; there is no thuggery and violence, the place is peaceful and calm.

“We encourage our people to come out in batches so they can strictly adhere to the Covid-19 protocols of social distances”.

He said he had not been able to get information about the conduct of the election across the state due to the poor network at his voting community.
