Ndaeyo commended INEC for conducting free, fair and credible elections, saying that the election was well organised.

“The elections was well organised, but in bringing results from the local government areas, it took a little time for us to collate the results,” Ndaeyo said.

He alleged that some politicians tried to thwart the efforts of the commission.
