Godwin Obeseki of the APC was declared winner of the Edo state governorship election today by INEC.
The election took place on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 but collation and announcement of the final result was delayed to Thursday afternon.
The governorship poll which was keenly contested between the APC and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was however characterised by several anomalies.
Obaseki's victory was however greeted by heavy rainfall which started shortly after the APC candidate was declared governor-elect by the Independent National Electoral commission (INEC).
Meanwhile, the PDP has rejected the final result of the election which was announced by INEC.
