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

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

Oyegun had earlier in the build-up to the election refused to endorse Ize-Iyamu.

“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. This is a special situation and primitive loyalties should and must be set aside. Remember Mr President’s admonition in an equally challenging pre-election situation in Imo State, “vote your conscience.”
