Ize-Iyamu:

The All Progressives Congress, APC has won in Owan East LGA as collation of results  Saturday’s Edo governorship election continues.

According to result declared at the local government collation centre, APC’s Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu  scored 19,295 votes.

Ize- Iyamu’s main opponent in the election, Governor Godwin Obaseki of Peoples Democratic Party scored 14,762 votes in the Local Government.

However, the poll outcome in Owan East may not be of much worry to the PDP candidate who has already taken what can be considered a massive lead against his APC opponent in the results of other LGAs declared so far.

In the latest result from Uhumnwode South-south local government, the PDP candidate  scored 10, 022 votes to 5972 votes scored by his APC opponent.
