With results from only one local government being awaited, the ruling All Progressives Congress has taken an unassailable lead in the Edo governorship elections.
The result of Ovia South West is yet to be announced as INEC personnel await the return of officials who supervised elections in the council.
From the results of 17 local governments announced so far, the APC has 306,663 votes while the PDP has 244,363 votes.
Already, the PDP has rejected the results. The party’s chairman, Dan Orbi, alleged that the results were fabricated and predetermined.
