Obaseki wins Edo Governorship Re-election, defeats’ Osaze Ize Iyamu at Orhionmwon LGA.

Mr. Godwin Obaseki has been re-elected as the governor of Edo State for another term of four years.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in Saturday’s governorship election polled a total of 307,955 votes to defeat his main challenger, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who got 223,619 votes.

Obaseki won in 13 LGAs including Oredo, where he hails from while Ize-Iyamu won in five. 

Co-incidentally both men battled it out in 2016 with Obaseki, the then flagbearer of the APC emerging victorious after defeating Ize-Iyamu who was the PDP candidate with over 200,000 votes.

Governor Obaseki had earlier extended his wide lead on Sunday after the result of Orhionmwon Local council, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s home council was declared by INEC.

Obaseki, the PDP candidate, unexpectedly beat Ize-Iyamu at home.

While he got 13,445 votes, Ize-Iyamu got 10,458, a margin of almost 3000 votes.

He now had 295,296 votes as against Ize-Iyamu’s 212,983 votes.
