“This is how election should be. This is the spirit of election and I want Kwarans to keep this up and Nigerians should emulate them” Madami said.

He said the reports he has received are positive if not for some places where there were card readers hitches which were resolved in the due course.

Despite rumours in some quarters of vote buying, Madami denied there was anything like that. In any case, he said, he has not received any news of such.

He urged Nigerians with defaced cards to approach his office for a replacement as they may have problems voting.

Madami called on those who are yet to collect their Permanent Voters Card to come for them as they have until first week of February to collect them.
