The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Edo State governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has won his polling unit at Ward 5, Iguododo community in Orhionwon Local Government Area.
Ize-Iyamu scored 292 votes while Godwin Obaseki of the PDP got 21 votes.
Ize-Iyamu cast his vote at about 9:30am at polling unit 26, ward 5 in Iguododo community, Orionhwon Local Government Area.
Ize-Iyamu had earlier expressed confidence that he would win the election if the peaceful situation at his unit was the same everywhere.
He said, “The accreditation is very easy, I have done that and they gave me the ballot paper. Where the ballot box is placed is covered and that means you can vote with some level of privacy.
“I cannot say that what is happening here is happening all over the state because the communication is not very good.
“I am happy I have been able to vote. I am very confident of winning and I just hope what is happening here is replicated all over the state.”
