Obaseki wins Edo election

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

He declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Godwin Obaseki, winner of the election.

Obaseki defeated his closest Challenger, Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress with a sizeable margin.

Although 17 political parties fielded candidates for the election, it is a two-way race between All Progressives Congress and 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.
