The governorship election in Edo State has begun calmly with remarkable 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 brawl and violence, there is a huge security presence in cities, towns, and villages.
There is compliance with restriction movement across the state.
Popular streets, especially in Benin, didn’t witness the usual traffic as the residents move to their respective polling stations for accreditation.
Reports also reaching TheNewsGuru from other areas of Edo, such as Uzzebba, Igueben, Auchi, Ososo, Ekpoma, Jattu, and Ughoton, among other towns and villages, say there is huge turnout and orderly situation.
