After the collation of results from the 18 local government areas of Edo state in south-south Nigeria, the Independent Electoral Commission, INEC declared that the candidate of the APC polled a total of 319,483 votes while his closest rival from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Osagie Ize-Iyamu, polled 253,173 votes.

 

The APC won in Akoko-Edo 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.

 

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

 

While the agent of the APC at the collation centre expressed satisfaction with the conduct and result of the election, describing it as the result of hard work, the PDP agent expressed strong reservation, referring to the result as a disappointment.

 

He subsequently refused to sign the final result sheet.

 

Prior to the announcement of the results on Thursday, September 29, security officials had to form a barricade outside the INEC office in Benin City.

 

This was in order to prevent a breakdown of law and order as some protesters alleged that there was a change of results by the electoral commission.
