Edo State Governor Mr Godwin Obaseki has expressed satisfaction with the turnout of voters in the state Assembly elections.

Speaking shortly after, Obaseki said: “I d‎on’t believe that there is a low turnout because as you can see, the ballot boxes are already filled up. It is a local election and the people that are concerned live in the neighbourhood and in the same community.

“And you should now that we only have one election today; so the process is quicker but in terms of turnout, I believed we are going to see a turn out that is slightly more than what we saw in the other elections.
