The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has won the Edo State governorship election. With election results in Ovia South West still being expected, Mr. Obaseki has swept the votes in 12 local government areas whilst his closest challenger, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, was the favourite candidate in five other LGAs. The APC candidate scored 306,663 votes in the 12 LGAs while Ize-Iyamu garnered 244,363 in five LGAs to place second. Without prejudice to the remaining local government result, Mr. Obaseki has fulfilled the constitutional requirements by winning the majority of valid votes cast in at least two-thirds of Edo State.
However, only the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, is vested with powers to declare the APC winner of the governorship polls in Edo.
Details later…

I wonder why edo state people will even think of voting pdp or vote pdp, well that is always the problems of nigerians they never appreciate good work and that is why they always vote the wrong leaders that has lead them to were they are today, for me as edo state is concern pdp is not even surpose to have 1 vote because they kill that state before the arrival of Oshomole

am from Edo state, the Edo people are even  kind to waste their time to cast a vote for PDP party. Edo state was in a completely in nightmare bad situation or worst situation  Eight good years under PDP not even one development of infrastructure. PDP specialize in throwing big victory parties  and throw party for the next two years without development of the state. Thanks to the arrival of Oshomole of APC by making  Edo State shine and congrats to APC victory
