US govt commends INEC over Edo state elections


The United States government has commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies over the conduct of the Edo State Governorship election.

In its tweets on Wednesday September 23, the US government also commended the people of Edo State for exercising their franchise. 

It read; 

Congratulations@inecnigeria and Nigerian security services on the Edo governorship election. We commend the people of Edo State for exercising their franchise and recognize @GovernorObaseki & @PastorIzeIyamu  for encouraging peace.

Thanks to civil society partners @YIAGA and @SituationRoomNg @cleenfoundation @KDI_ng  for their invaluable work. #EdoDecides2020


  1. It is not that our leaders do not know what is right and proper, it is just that those who are beneficiary of doing the awkward will not like to do what is right because of their selfish gain. Because Edo results were sent electronically from the voting centers, one, the results were early in reaching the counting centers. Secondly, there were not much room to do abracadabra that Nigerian elections were noted for before the last election.

    I just hope and pray that we continue from henceforth to do the right.

    One lesson learnt also is that with the transparent outcome, it leaves not much room for losers to gamble for legal angle, sorry the lawyers will not like this much. All the same, it is the good for Nigeria
