DAY AFTER GOV POLL: Edo revels in Obaseki’s victory

SUPPORTERS of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, were yesterday in a celebratory mood over the victory of Mr. Godwin Obaseki in the governorship election held in the state with many describing the outcome of the exercise as the triumph of light over darkness.

Leading the jubilant crowd was the state governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his wife, Lara Oshiomhole, who embarked on a road show across the ancient city of Benin. Obaseki polled 51.3% of the total votes cast in the election, according to the results declared yesterday. He was trailed by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who polled 40% of the votes cast. This came as the state government dismissed reports to the effect that there were protests across the state.
