JUST IN: PDP wins APC’s Oyegun’s polling unit

Godwin Obaseki, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Edo gubernatorial election, secured the highest number of votes cast at polling unit 02, ward 002, Oredo local government area, on Saturday.

John Odigie Oyegun, former national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), voted at this polling unit.

In the result as released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Obaseki polled 109 votes to defeat Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the APC, who garnered 40 votes.

Oyegun had refused to endorse Ize-Iyamu in the buildup to the election, asking the people to vote their conscience.

“I stand with the people of Edo State and urge them to to come out massively to exercise their democratic rights. They should vote for good governance, common decency, principled leadership, especially in the political arena and the protection of their democratic rights,” he had said in a statement.

“They should by their votes make clear that it is their right to choose their governor and nobody else’s. There is no room for fence sitters.”
