The State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Pastor Monday Udoh, in his welcome address, said the election conducted by INEC was adjudged right in the eyes of the world.

He said the process, which started in May 2019, came with a lot of seizures, following fears of violence hinged on the outcome of previous elections in the state that were marred by violence and killings, but he noted that through various engagements with stakeholders, civil society groups, alternative dispute mechanism and security agencies, the election was free, fair and credible.
