Governor Godwin Obaseki extended his wide lead on Sunday after the result of Orhionmwon Local council, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s home council was declared by INEC.
Obaseki, the PDP candidate, unexpectedly beat Ize-Iyamu at home.
While he got 13,445 votes, Ize-Iyamu got 10,458, a margin of almost 3000 votes.
The new margin extended Obaseki’s lead to 82,213 votes.
He now has 295,296 votes as against Ize-Iyamu’s 212,983 votes.
Only the result of Ovia South West remains. It is not likely to change the result and Obaseki’s sure victory.
