Anambra State Governor Charles Soludo, on Saturday, displayed his ballot paper for all to see as he cast his vote in the State Assembly election.

President Muhammadu Buhari began the trend in the 2023 election cycle when he displayed his ballot paper to confirm he voted for his party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, following rumours he was not in support of Tinubu.

Soludo arrived at his Polling Unit 002, Ofiyi Square, Umueze at Isuofia Ward 13, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra and cast his vote at exactly 11.30 a.m.

Speaking with newsmen shortly after voting, the governor urged other eligible voters to come out and exercise their civic obligations.

He commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for early commencement of the process in the state.

He added that “from the information available to me, the electoral process seems to be going on well in terms of deployment of logistics and early commencement of election.

“I think there is a great improvement compared to the previous election in terms of the arrival and deployment of materials. It seems to be going on well, relatively peaceful.

”I’m optimistic that the will of the people will prevail in spite of low turnout of voters when compared to the previous election.

”I want to encourage the people of Anambra to step out and exercise their civic obligations by voting. Anyone who is on the queue before 2 p.m. will be allowed to vote and your vote will count.”

Soludo commended residents for conducting themselves peacefully so far.
