The Edo State Government has declared Wednesday, April 1, 2015, a work-free day in the state to celebrate the “victory” of General Muhammadu Buhari, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the 2015 Presidential election.

The result of the presidential election from Borno State was still being expected, although General Buhari had taken a clear lead at the time.

Top artistes, including Davido, Patoranking, Osayomore Joseph, Young Bolivia, among others, would perform at the party to celebrate General Buhari’s victory.
