The candidate of the All Progressives congress in the Edo State governoship election held yesterday, Mr Godwin Obaseki is in pole position to become the next Executive Governor of Edo state. So far, the electoral commission, INEC, has announced the results of nine of the 18 local governments and they show that the ruling All Progressives Congress won in 5 local governments while the Peoples Democratic Party won in 4 local governments.

The APC  has 142,424 votes while the PDP has 136,808 votes.

However, with results of the six local government in Edo North, the stronghold of the All Progressives Congress and where unofficial results put the APC in overwhelming lead, it is only a matter of time before Mr Godwin Obaseki is declared the winner of the election.
