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.
In Egor Local Government, Governor Godwin Obaseki of PDP scored 27, 621 votes, more than double the 10, 202 garnered by his main opponent, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in the area.
The scenario was not different in Esan West LGA where PDP scored 17, 433 to 7, 189 votes scored by APC.
PM NEWS had earlier reported that Obaseki of PDP has taken a commanding lead over Ize-Iyamu based on results of four local governments earlier declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The collated results of the governorship election announced in four LGAs early Sunday shows that Obaseki is leading his main opponent by 14,994 votes.
