Secretary of the Plateau State APC, Bashir Sati, has commended the outcome of the election saying, "The process of the election was very hectic, but the poll ended well.
"The process of the election was not really smooth right from the commencement of the process and was so challenging.
"But we thank God that there was no problem anywhere, there was no loss of life."
However, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the election as a sham, saying, "It was mere appointment and not an election."
The publicity secretary of the party in the state, John Akans, said, "PLASIEC has just announced the appointment of people into the local government areas as there was no election anywhere in Plateau."
