PDP wins APC Former Chairman's Ward

Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Oyegun, has again lost in his polling unit to the Peoples Democratic Party in the ongoing Edo State governorship election.

Oyegun, who registered in Ward 2, Unit 2, in Oredo Local Government Area, voted at about 11:00am, SaharaReporters gathered.

At the end of voting, sorting and counting, the PDP candidate and incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki, scored 109 votes while the APC trailed behind with 40 votes.

Oyegun had in a statement during the week refused to endorse Osagie Ize-Iyamu, his party’s candidate in the governorship election.

“I stand with the people of Edo State and urge them to come out massively to exercise their democratic rights. They should vote for good governance, common decency, principled leadership, especially in the political arena and the protection of their democratic rights.

“They should by their votes make clear that it is their right to choose their governor and nobody else’s. There is no room for fence sitters. This is a special situation and primitive loyalties should and must be set aside. Remember Mr President’s admonition in an equally challenging pre-election situation in Imo State, “vote your conscience,” he said.
