The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Osagie Ize-Iyamu has rejected the results announced so far by the Independent National Electoral Commission on the just concluded Edo State governorship election.  

The PDP candidate alleged inducement of voters and collaboration of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the state government to doctor the results in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

So far about 16 local government areas have been announced, with the PDP trailing the APC 5 to 12 local governments.

The APC won in Akoko LGA, Ikpoba-Okha, Etsako West, Etsako East, Etsako Cenral, Owan East LGA, Ovia North LGA, Oredo LGA, Uhunwomnde,  Igueben LGA, Egor LGA, Owan West LGA

While the PDP won in Esan North Central, Esan West LGA, Orhionmwon LGA, Esan South East LGA, Esan North East LGA.

Earlier, some protested had contested the results being announced, alleging that the results are not a reflection of what transpired at the polling units.
