BENIN CITY – GOVENROR Adams Oshiomhole led
All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state
floored the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the
House of Assembly elections held Saturday,
winning 21 out of the 24 House of Assembly seats
in the state.

The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Tony
Anenih picked three seats for his party in his Edo
Central senatorial district of the state.

Meanwhile unofficial results in the rescheduled Edo
South senartorial election in Oriomnwon Local
Government Area of Edo state, indicated that the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate,
Pharm.Matthew Urhoghide defeated the Minority
whip of the House of Representatives and APC
candidate, Mr Samson Osagie.

Results from polling units indicated that though
Osagie defeated Urhoghide in Oriomwon but the
poor voters turn out affected his chances in
upturning the about 27,000 votes which Urhoghide
was leading with after the March 28, National
Assembly elections in six Local Government Areas
in Edo South.

Meantime, the Resident Electoral Commissioner in
Edo state, Mr Mike Igini, who declared that
elections have been concluded in the state,
commended the people of the state for their
support throughout the elections.

Some of the House of Assembly results in Edo
South indicated that the immediate past Edo state
Commissioner in the Board of the Niger Delta
Development Commission (NDDC) and APC House
of Assembly candidate in Ikpoba Okhai, Mr Henry
Okwuarobo polled 23,571 as against 14,459 polled
by the PDP candidate.

The former chairman of Egor Local Government
Area and APC House of Assembly candidate for
Egor, Mr Crosby Eribo polled 19,554 t defeat the
PDP candidate, Nosa Adams who polled 12,233
votes. Results from the collations centers indicated
that the APC won the entire House of Assembly
seats in Edo South and Edo North senatorial
districts of the state while they picked three out of
the six in Edo Central district.

Igini who spoke to Vanguard Sunday said, “ First
Edo state people I must commend them for the
kind of corporation they gave to the commission. I
must commend them the way and manner they
appreciated that we stand for electoral justice, that
all that is required from us is to provide a level
playing field. Haven looked at the reports from
other parts of the country you will see that the
outcome of the election is as contested by the
candidates, it is a reflection of what the people
wanted.

“Baring a few complaints here and there, any
human activity of this complex nature you will not
expect that there will be no isolated case of
deviation by one ad-hoc staff or the other. Of
course on account of politicians who are very very
desperate to want to have unfair advantage of the
system? Over all I am very satisfied, particularly
with the performance of Saturday election unlike
the first election, our logistic arrangement was
perfect.

“ We got to all the polling unit as at 6am and
materials were on ground. They were areas we had
issues with card readers in the morning but the
problem was quickly dealt with. The card readers
worked in a very fantastic manner. Personally, my
level of satisfaction in this Saturday election was
very exceptional and I am very happy. I have kept
faith that under my watch it will be free, fair,
credible election, providing a level playing field for
all candidates” he stated.
