He said:

"So far, so good, everything is going smoothly. Everything is going well," he said just as he further expressed optimism that more of the electorate would come out to vote before the close of the exercise.

He said he did not have issues with BVAS used by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), but said it was too early to give an overall assessment of the process since the election was still ongoing.

"We still have time and we are hopeful that more people would turn out at the various polling units.
"Our people have matured and democracy is growing stronger," he said while advising citizens of the country to be calm and law-abiding.

The speaker commended the people of Agege for their consistency and constant support.
