Obaseki wins Edo governorship election, defeats Ize-Iyamu in his LG

Governor Godwin Obaseki of the PDP has won the Edo state governorship election.

The results from the 18 Local Governments in the state declared by INEC has given Obaseki victory.


The incumbent governor defeated his closest rival, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the APC in his local government area.

Ize-Iyamu is from Orhionmwon. Obaseki scored 13,445 votes in the council to defeat the APC candidate who polled 10,458 votes.

Although 17 political parties participated in the Saturday's election, it was a two-way race between Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the APC and Obaseki of the PDP.

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

The PDP scored 307,955 while APC had 223,619 votes from the results declared in the 18 LGAs by the INEC.

The election held in 18 Local Government Areas, 192 Wards, and 2,627 polling units.
