EdoDecides2020: Obaseki Declared Winner

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Sunday, declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Godwin Obaseki, as the winner of the governorship election in Edo State.

Making the announcement was Prof. Akpofure Rim-Rukeh, INEC’s Returning Officer.

He said APC polled 223,619 votes, while PDP got 307,955 votes.

Incumbent Governor Obaseki of PDP ran against APC standard-bearer Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Obaseki was elected on APC’s platform in 2016 but defected to the PDP after being denied the ticket owing to intra-party squabbles.
