“It has been encouraging. I am impressed with the idea of accrediting and voting immediately by the INEC.“From the reports, it has been orderly sofar regarding the voting exercise. There has been no problem.
“PDP has gone very well in its campaignand you know that it has been searching for power since 2003.
“The party has good candidate and it is a party on ground but we are faced with the incumbency factor. We recognized that but it may not count because PDP lost election even with power of incumbency,”he said.
